Rio Costilla Fly Fishing Report 08/25/2000

In early August flows were back up around 100cfs on weekdays and fishing was good with Hopper-dropper combos and Caddis dries later in the day. Low flows were about 40cfs and consequently fishing was better on weekends than in July despite increased fishing pressure. Later in the month high flows were around 60cfs and Caddis patterns produced well all day but better late.

Conejos River Fly Fishing Report 08/25/2000

We fished the Hamilton lease on 8/5 and the Rocky Mt. Angler lease on 8/6. We had a good day on on the Hamilton lease and started at 8am to minimize the effect of high afternoon temperatures. We started later the next day on the Rocky Mt. lease and didn’t do as well as this section is just above the Rainbow Trout Lodge and here temps were in the high 60*s by 2pm. On 8/24 and 8/25 at 40cfs from Platoro we fished above the Pinnacles and clouds kept the temps in the low 60*s both days and fishing was good most of the day. No big fish but a bunch of 13-16″ Browns on D&D rigs.
