**Highway 34 is closed for the season due to road work. Continue reading our Big Thompson Report for more details.**
The Big Thompson is officially iced up. The gages both above Lake Estes and through Moraine Park are now turned off for the season, while the flow below the dam continues to fluctuate around 25 CFS. We would reccomend heading below Lake Estes to find the open and fishy water. Caution! There will be many people accessing this tailwater this time of year, if your looking to get away from the crouds we wouldn't reccomend hitting this tailwater. Tiny midges are the most productive in tricking the educated fish below the dam, we are talking sizes 20-28. Make sure to have smaller tippet and leader down to 8x, split shot, and lighter indicators when heading to the Big T.
US 34 is currently closed between mile marker 77 and 80. The closure is predicted to open back up in May of 2017. For more details on this, visit the link.
