Fishing Report October 1 2014

I have been up on the area streams some this week and can report huge numbers of fish seen in the water when looking in the pools. The water is extremely clear at this time of year and it takes a careful approach to catch them now. Small flies in size 20 and 22 are best now. The fishing is very good early and late as the fish cannot see you approach as well at those times. Recent rains raised the Rio Grande again and so it’s a tad murky but my son caught two nice trout in about 20 minutes so it’s still fish-able.

Lakes are also producing fish as they are trying to pack on the weight before winter sets in and the lakes ice over. Trolling is working best but I saw some nice pan size fish caught at Big Meadows off the shore on pink Power Bait. One guy in the RV park did pull in two 19” Rainbows out of Road Canyon on bubble-fly setup casting a size 14 Renegade. He reportedly was fishing just off the boat ramp.

This past week found me out and about the Upper Rio Grande partaking in some phenomenal trout fishing.

I started the week with some dry fly fishing in the Rio Grande between South Fork and Creede and had one of the best days I can remember on the river ever. The bite was slow but I had some 18 inch fish come to hand before I was done.

Our summer weather pattern has arrived and the fish are biting well with the increase in temperatures. Given that Beaver and Continental Reservoirs are closed for repairs, the other area lakes are seeing an increase in anglers present on any given day.  

Good reports are coming out of Rio Hondo Reservoir with Power Bait type presentations being the most successful. Fish are also being caught on lures such as rapalas and spoon types when fished slow.
