Colorado River near Pumphouse

We spoke to Kevin at Fly Fishing Outfitters and got the skinny on that water. We walked up from Pumphouse about 1-1/2 miles total up into Gore Canyon. We fished with black copperjohns, hares ears early and picked up a few browns in the runs. Then we switched to dries and caught them on a small stimulator and a “fruit fly” which had wings like a royal wulff but had a orange-ish/pink-ish body. Need to get the name of this fly and learn to tie it. It also worked on browns on the upper Taylor River above Taylor Res.

Dries were really coming off in the evening.

Dave ended up in the doghouse for this trip but it was worth it.
