Snow runoff in the Yampa Valley is filling the river right before our eyes. With warmer temperatures and melting snow come increased water levels and surging schools of fish. Fly-fishing, in addition to traditional lure fishing, has made a measurable mark on the outdoor industry in Steamboat. It’s not uncommon to see fishing take place all winter long.
Now that spring has sprung, fly fishers especially are beginning to line the banks of the Yampa hoping for that perfect fly to snag and release a nice rainbow or brown trout. As you sit along the bank of the river, Steamboat Lake or Stagecoach Reservoir, make sure to bring a meat snack to enjoy along with the views of the majestic scenery we call our backyard.
