Because we don’t have snow in Colorado this year smart people predicted a significant water shortage. While this will impact the fishing in July and August, right now everything is fishing quite well. The carp fishing is ahead of schedule with the river in town still low and clear and the ponds having respectable visibility for mid May.
The Colorado at Kremmling is at 372 CFS…372. The Salmonflies are popping and the water is not only fishable but you can actually wade across the river. This might be the most fun salmonfly hatch we’ve had in Colorado since I moved here. All in all I think I’ll try to take advantage of this low water before it ruins the back end of the fishing season.
