Since the restrictions were lifted the fishing has gotten better! Dry and dropper rigs are your best bet, especially fished along drop offs. Try a hopper or stonefly up top with a San Juan or copper john dropper. Larger hoppers and stoneflies have been working great along the banks. October caddis should be out anytime now.
