Fished the Uncompahgre River below Ridgway Reservoir today. It was partly cloudy with gusty winds at times out of the West. Temperature was in the high 40s to low 50s. I Started to fish around 1 pm. I caught three Browns, one Cutthroat and a nice 19" Rainbow. I Used a #16 bead head pheasant tail below a #12 orange colored egg pattern. They all took the pheasant tail. I tried fishing without the egg pattern and they would not touch the nymph by itself. I put the egg pattern back on and again continued to catch fish . There was good midge activity and probably would of done better with a midge dropper but forgot to bring my midge patterns. :-[ Over all a descent day and very quite with only two other anglers seen during the time I was there.
