Estes Park Fly Fishing Guides Report.
Our Estes Park Fly Fishing Guides report that the fly fishing on the Big Thompson River below Lake Estes is pretty darn good. Highway 34 construction has limited the access so the pressure on the fishery is low. Our Fly Fishing guides out of Estes Park are reporting a good to strong hatch of BWO’s with a few October Caddis in the mix. Look for the trout to be in the deeper runs. Keep in mind that those poor fish see a lot of boots through out the season. A 9 ft 5x leader tapered to 6x tippet is the way to go. Using a dry dropper rig has been money. Please keep in mind that the brown trout spawn is on. So please let them do their thing. Our Estes Park Fly Fishing Guides choice for flies are a #18 BWO Cripple, #18 2nd Chance BWO, #18 J’s BWO Emerger, #20 97oh and last but not least the oh so deadly #20 All American.
