After coming off my last stint at Grey reef I am now heading back to the fantastic Colorado River.  The last couple of days on the Colorado, from Parshall to Hot Sulphur, the fish are keying in on PMD’s ,Yellow Sallies, and a few larger stone flies. I am always amazed the fish one can catch in this water. It is high, fast, but the fish find other lies in which to feed in, this is the time to fish! Most anglers wait out the high water for more favorable conditions, but this is the time to find solitude on a great piece of water, work the edges with a dry dropper, or mini rig. Flies to use consist of Pats Rubber Legs, Yellow Sallie nymphs, Barrs PMD emerger, and an multitude of beaded flies. Fish have not left the building, they have just switched lies!    Blue Quill Guide Bob Dye
