Default Re: Cache la Poudre River, Fort Collins?

I fish the poudre 3-5 times a week in town during the spring to late fall. Yes it did get hit hard by the fires, but continued to fish well afterwards when the ash settled between rainfall. Last spring was out of control, the fishing was off the hook. The flush from the big runoff the year before cleaned out the river really well, allowing for a lot more insects to colonize the rocks, and the hatches were a lot larger and more diverse than other years. It is flowing low and crystal clear right now, but with flows around 18cfs the fish are really spooky. Cloudy crappy days it fishes bestright now when the flows are this low.
