Flies & Lies Weekly Report October 21, 2021
CFS : at Cheesman canyon dam - 350
CFS : at Trumbull below brush creek - 365
The water came up by 200 CFS yesterday afternoon. This has made the water clarity off color but still fishable and will be clear in a day. A heavy nymph rig or streamer rig is best. Focus on the softer edges and pockets behind boulders.
Make sure to use plenty of weight to get down in this faster water.
For nymphs think big and flashy.
