Default Re: Cache la Poudre River, Fort Collins?

legacy park is pretty good for me, I also like gustav swanson park by New Belgium. For now, with the flows so low, stealthy approaches are really needed. Best times for me are around 4:30-6:30. There is almost always a midge hatch around then and plenty of rising fish. I usually use a black or grey sprout midge, or a jujubee adult midge(yes I said jujubee adult, see charlie cravens website for tying info). Both work well as emergers in the film. If the flows ever pickup, then nymphing is the ticket. I like a size 12 or 14 flashback hares ear followed by a BWO or midge pupa. I plan on getting out sometime this week, PM me if you would like to meet up.
