You'll have to watch the flows even in late July - they've been flushing the lake and we've got big run-off this year. Really high flows can make fishing harder - but still worth it. The Unc is in my back yard at it sounds like a freight train right now. They've been putting some nice snake river cuts in the tailwater - bruisers out there. There's also usually a wealth of rainbows and browns. Should be some green drakes and caddis, as well as terrestrials. Usual nymph patterns will produce. Stop by RIGS fly shop in Ridgway for the latest.

The lake is always good fishing as the stock it all the time. You'll catch stocked bows all day long. There's kokonee deep. An occasional monster brown is hauled in.

Since you have 3 days and the Unc tailwater is just over a mile long, you'll cover it pretty quickly. I'd consider hitting the San Miguel if its not blown out by rain - very scenic and good water. For something different the Gunnison at the East Portal of the Black canyon has great scenery and fishing. You might want to take your yaks over to Woods Lake...its small but a gem.
