During the spring melt, the Taylor River has consistently proven to be the strong, productive fishery that fly fishing anglers have grown to respect. If spring is any indication of what fishing will be like this summer, we are in for a great fly-fishing season. Even with early signs of run off in the East and Gunnison Rivers, the Taylor River remains crystal clear. After the long winter, fish have been aggressively feeding on both big stone flies and small midges. The spawning Rainbow population and the aggressive nature of the German Browns has made for legendary streamer fishing.
Wilder’s fish in Rarick Creek and the community ponds have made it through the winter well and are in constant search of their next meal. Rarick Creek continues to produce trophy size trout on large dry flies. The ponds are teeming with feeding fish sipping small blue wings off of the surface.
