Default Re: Blue River, Colorado- Help needed

I've had the best luck using miracle midges pupae flies, San Juan worms, and caddis emergers. Stones work in the quicker riffles too. I've had zero luck fishing drys on the Blue.

The outlet mall spot is a great place to start, then check out the Green Mountain tailwater. But, that river, like all of them right now, is really low so the fish are skiddish.

I had a few hours today before a dinner meetingin Breckenridge so I thought Id hit the Blue at the outlets. Since it was Wednesday I didnt expect massive crowds and there were a handful of guys on the water but not bad. It was slow for a while then all of a sudden the water was full of big fish. I had 3 or 4 on that I lost but then I landed a FAT 15" rainbow. On my way I had one bust me off and when he rolled he was way bigger than the 15"er Id guess him in the 19" plus range

I dont feel bad losing so many when your fishing a size 22 midge barbless it happens, but it was still fun

it was cool just watching them, where in the water column they were feeding , led me to choose a size 22 WD40 and it did the trick
