The annual snowmelt runoff is in full force all over the state. The St Vrain River system is no exception, with high water on both the North and South branches. The stretch between Bohn Park and McConnell Drive is very fishable right now. Fish a small streamer like a black or olive Woolly Bugger through the deeper holes, or a two nymph rig such as a Pheasant Tail or Prince Nymph trailing a pink or purple San Juan Worm in quieter water along the edges or behind boulders or other obstructions. Look for the Laughing Grizzly at the Lyons Outdoor Games. We'll be doing on-the-water fly fishing demos.
