The fishing has been great all year long. The bugs are really small right now, but there are still a ton of Tricos in 11 Mile Canyon. The fish in the picture above was caught on a #26 trico spinner by some beginner fly fisherman. It is possible to teach never evers how to cast a dry fly and catch fish on small patterns. It helps if the clients are younger than 50 too so they can see the pattern on the water!
There is still some really good time on the water right now. The tricks are mixed with BWOs and that makes for a great dry fly day.
