Current Streamflow: 105 CFS below Ralph Price Reservoir
Fishing has been spotty depending on the section river, In Longmont the fishing has been better closer to the interstate. Fishing near Lyons has been fair with your typical spring pattern starting to develop, we are seeing a number of Baetis, midges, and even the occasional stonefly hatching on the warmer days. Keep in mind that Highway 7 is still closed south of Lyons. The best fishing you will find will be below Buttonrock Reservoir in the tailwater section. Flow have been on the rise the last few days so the water has the potential to become off color.
