"The Yampa (bear in Native American language) originates high above the northwest Colorado town of Yampa, into which the Bear River flows. Wonderfully varied fly fishing opportunities abound along the 150 river miles of water as it flows west to Dinosaur National Monument and Utah’s fabled Green River. The fifteen-mile stretch from Stillwater Reservoir to Yampa has tailwaters, pretty meadow sections and tumbling freestone waters. Fly fishing for the “Rocky Mountain Grand Slam” (brook, rainbow, cutthroat, brown and whitefish) is quite possible in this section. Fish average 8-16 inches here. Types of Fish: Rainbow, brown, cutthroat, and brook trout, whitefish, northern pike, smallmouth bass. 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."
