Fishing & River Report

 November 22, 2020

            Flows below Cheesman Reservoir: 72 CFS

 

 

Fishing has been good and the fish are adjusting to the lower river flows. Clarity of the river is good. As we approach winter conditions the main hatch is Midges and in the afternoon we are seeing some BWO's.

 

We are expecting to see these lower flows as Denver Water has now completed their maintenance and repairs on the Roberts Tunnel. 

 

 

 

          Help us keep the river and river banks clean of trash, pack out any trash you see!!!
