High Country is Starting to Open

The high mountain creek fishing is about to turn on within the next few weeks. Most of the creeks are clear but still to high to fish well. Hermosa Creek along the East Fork is probably the best currently. Vallecito Creek, the Upper Los Pinos and Upper Florida River are a good area to explore. Flows are dropping and the hatches are about to start. Look for Mayflies, Caddis and Stone flies. Dry and dry dropper rigs should work well. Stop into the shop to stock up.
