Yampa River Fishing Report

Fly Fishing Report for August 13th. 2014

The Yampa River starts below Stagecoach Reservoir and continues through the town of Steamboat Springs and heads west to the confluence of the Green River. Along it’s journey this gold medal Trout fishery melds into a warm water fly fishery inhabited by Small-mouth Bass and Large Northern Pike. Most of the Water west of Craig CO is accessible by boat only. The Pike fishing on the reservoir is AWESOME!
