Its fishing ok. Was their a week ago - just as the weather started warming a bit. I do like the river too, but it gets a lot more pressure. i had a rare weekday up there, and I still had to share it with a couple dozen people.
I fished streamers through midges and caught fish across the board. Upper river was better as it didnt have the shelf ice (or any ice for that matter)
Finally had a chance to get up to the Canyon yesterday. The wind was brutal; I've fished the canyon a number of times since I've lived in CO, and yesterday was def the windiest to date. 10MPH constant winds with frequent gusts exceeding 30MPH.
I was on the river from 10AM - 3PM. Half of which was spent fighting the wind + shitty drifts. Landed 7 fish; lost 4 (boy I'm rusty). Size ranging from about 14" - 17".
I only took 2 pics as it's a pain to shoot photos without a waterproof device; I've almost dropped my cell and digital camera in a water a few times now. Thinking about ordering one of those sports cams.
Anyway, here's one of the small ones and one of the average sized fish landed.
