Poudre River Fishing Report: If you have time to fish DO IT!! Fish are looking up and taking dries with a vengence! The water is getting into prime shape right now. Fishing has become better and better with more fishable spots opening up throughout the canyon. Fish have begun to take large cicada-like dries in the lower and middle canyon, and nymphing is still productive. Fish are spreading out a little bit more to those pockets which gives you more fishable water.
Our guides are telling us fish are eating dries right off the bank. Underneath, the big stuff will also continue to pick up fish. Big stones, worms, and larger caddis patterns will be your best option for nymphs.
Town is finally starting to drop into really good fishing flows right now too. Town is actually lower than the canyon due to water being diverted for irrigation, so if you don't have much time this is a great option. We are getting reports of fish being caught on dries throughout town. The Sheilds Bridge is still closed so either go all the way to Lyons and Watson, or downstream to Lee Martinex Park. THe same bugs from the canyon will perform great in town
