Bunyan Bug, Stonefly No. 2

Floated the Colorado River with a good friend, Mark Moeller. Fished from 10:00 to 5:00 and found a lot of stoneflies! We saw a better concentration of stones in the heavy canyon water. When we looked up in the sky we could see them buzzing around like mini helicopters.

We floated with Clint Rossell, from Cutthroat Anglers. I would highly recommend getting out and floating with Clint. Floating is a great way to get out and see the river.

The flow was 3,700 CFS, WOW! The good news; the water is starting to drop every day. The fish are holding pretty tight to the bank. The beauty of fishing these bugs is the opportunity to use bigger flies and bigger tippet. We fished with Terranasties, Rogue Foam Stones, Rubblerleg stones, and Morrish's W.M.D. Stones.
