Colorado's Salmonfly Hatch

June 28, 2017


If you haven't fished this hatch yet, you should! Opportunity to throw big dry flies and witness fish gorging themselves makes for a very rad float fishing experience!

I had success on #4 & #6 Sofa Pillows and various foam Salmonfly imitations!

Floating multiple days is super fun and can be done self-guided or through some of the amazing outfitters in Colorado. The Colorado river and Gunnison are awesome

Rivers to float and experience this hatch!

Fish species


That is a classic fly and still works well! I enjoy the Clark's stonefly, almost unheard of these days of foam and rubber. Well done photos, very nice!
Heck yeah, thanks! I'll have to try that one next go around!
