Major Food Organisms: Midges, Mysis shrimp, aquatic worms, stoneflies, caddis larvae and Baetis nymphs Hatches: None to speak of 14 Day Forecast: Spring run-off continues to prevail. Conditions are dangerous right now in Silverthorne, please use extreme caution if you fish this area!

Tips and Other Information: The Blue River is fishing well throughout the entire watershed. Anglers can expect to see hatches of caddis, yellow sallies, pale morning duns and Tricos. Effective patterns have been Mysis shrimp, San Juan Worms, egg patterns as lead flies, dropped with small Barr Emergers, Mercury Pheasant Tails, RS 2's, Brassies, and Black Beauties. Target the slow water margins along the river's edge as the fish are stacked up there. Fishing will continue to improve as the flow drops. The lower river is still very high, but fishing above Green Mountain Reservoir has been fair to good if you choose the right water.

About: - The scenic Blue River is one of Colorado's Gold Medal fisheries. Tailwaters of Dillon Reservoir the river provides rather consistent fishing. The river is easy to wade and has good access.

The Blue River has abundance of Mysis shrimp from of the reservoir, which may be a contributing factor to why the fishery has an unusual number of large trout. In the winter months the river freezes downstream at about the five-mile mark starting in mid to late December. Between late March and November the entire river fishes well.

The river host Rainbows, Browns, Cuttbows and Cutthroats, with some rainbows and browns near the thirty inch mark.

Location - The Blue River runs from the Dillon Reservoir Dam, just above the town of Silverthorne, to the confluence with the Colorado River at Kremmling. Highway 9 runs along the length of the river and it can be accessed by Interstate 70 west out of Denver to the town of Dillon.
