Early July 2013 – Taylor River flows peaked in Gunnison County on or near the 10th of June this year and fly fishing conditions are now perfect with all rivers dropping fast and clear. It looks to be another low water year for Western Colorado but at the Wilder we are fortunate to have guaranteed flows of between 250 and 350 cfs on our 2 miles of the Taylor River through early October. This is a great level to fish the Taylor as it is very wadeable and in these conditions the fish show a particular fondness for small dry flies.
Currently on the Taylor River at the Wilder, flows are at 375 and should be slowly dropping to the 300 level over the next couple of weeks. Water temperatures are in the mid forties and gradually warming. The water is clear and bugs are starting to hatch.
