Was it “the flush” that went through the river last week with up to around 20000 cfs out of Palisades Dam? Who knows! Now flows are down to summer levels again: 13500 cfs out of the dam, 14300 cfs at Heise, 7400 cfs at Lorenzo. So back to strategies we suggested in our earlier South Fork reports: Look for BWO activity at the top end of shallower riffles, continue trying soft water in runs and side channels with streamers and nymphs, use rubber legs and streamers in deeper, faster waters. San Juan and squirmy worm variations will work almost anywhere in the river because those high flows of last week scoured banks enough to bring a bunch of annelids into the water. So fish will be looking for these packages of easy protein.
