Fishing Outlook & Conditions
Royal Gorge Anglers's Tip of the Week
Decent stable winter flows on the tailwater. Fish are holding in their normal winter locations, including seams, pockets and riffles. Midge and BWO nymphs are your winter bread and butter, but there can be some decent BWO hatches late morning too.

Techniques & Tips as of 1/25/23
Tactical rigs with quick drop presentations. Get down in a hurry to take advantage of indicator or tight line nymphing. Morning dry fly fishing can be quite good.
