The “tailwater,” also known as the upper Yampa, is one of the most productive stretches of river year-round. The dam keeps the flows and water temperature nearly consistent for the entire year. The DOW keeps a close eye on the water and river bank health which makes for incredible fishing,
The tailwater is now open and fishing well! Midges and scuds have been the most productive flies. Call us down at the shop if you have any questions, 970-879-6552.
