7/10 Gypsum Float Fishing Report

Brandon, Richard
Sunny, afternoon winds
Eagle River - Gypsum
Tea green, fast, cold!

We were graced to have a crew of 11 people from Texas come fish with is today and boy were they fun and eager. Glad we left the Red Bulls at home because most of our clients were between 11 and 14 years old ha. All first timers, these guys learned quick and got some really good drifts. We fished all three ways - dries, nymphs and streamers with most fish eating underneath an indicator between the Rittenhouse put-in and Duck Pond take-out. Water temps on the Eagle River in Gypsum, CO are prime between 48 and 53 degrees. The fish areyy on the move and willing to take flies outside of their comfort zone if it’s worth moving for. Flies worth moving for include hoppers, golden stone dries amd nymphs, black micro caddis and pmd emergers. Yellow sally nymphs also caught the interest of our resident brown and rainbow trout. Fish are moving into the faster water and holding in the skinny stuff so dry-dropper is great as well as shallow nymph rigs.
