Thread: Fishing in May?

  1. Default Fishing in May?

    Myself and three friends are road tripping to Colorado in mid May this year. Can anyone turn us onto what to expect as far as weather/stream conditions. We have no river in particular picked out. I suppose tailwaters will be our only option. Anyone have any advice? Thanks a lot!

    Bryson: You should find some very good fishing in May, what part of the state are you looking at? I'd suggest the Frying Pan/Roaring Fork rivers in Basalt, CO or maybe the South Platte.

    Lightbulb Check the Game Regs!

    You may be a bit early vis a vis 'Opening Dates.' Check the game regs for where you're heading as many States don't have 'open season' until the third weekend of May.

    You might want to consider visiting a little later because of opening day and high water from snow melt..........enjoy and be careful !!

    Here in Colorado we fish year round. No opening dates. Runoff may be going on, but usually doesn't hit full force until June. May is caddis and stoneflies for the most part. Even if the water is a bit dirty you should find something fishing good.
