Blue River Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Blue is a medium-size river, running 100-300 cfs most years, and one of the most scenic Gold Medal fisheries in Colorado. Fly fish from Dillon Reservoir dam down to the Colorado River. From Dillon to Green Mountain Reservoir offers the best chance for success.

Much of the other water is private, so most anglers use the ten miles of public access between the two lakes. Types of Fish: Brown, rainbow, some brook trout, cutthroats and fall spawning Kokanee salmon. This eTrail covers the "where, when, and how" to fish in this region. You'll get a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to bring, and the best flies to use."
