Rocky Mountain National Park Fishing Report

Rocky Mountain National Park Fishing Report:

One of my favorite guided trips of the season was last week in the RMNP. The Big Thompson in the Park has been awesome. Using a dry dropper has been the way to go. Start your morning with a Caddis on top with an Old Blue dropped below. Make sure to adjust the dropper to the depth of water you are fishing. This combo has been working for us until Lunch and after. Around 1 pm you should notice a good hatch of PMD’s and a weaker hatch of Drakes (almost done). If you catch the hatch it is game on. The better fishing is further up stream from the Cub trail head.

Guide Recommend Flies: Dries: #14 EC Caddis, #16 PMD Cripple, #12 Drake. Nymphs: #16 Old Blue, #16 Mavis Mayfly.
