The Blue River, like the rest of the state is on the rise causing difficult wading but still plenty plenty of fish willing to take a fly. Focus on the banks as the fish will have moved towards the edge of the river and have become podded up. This year should be an exceptional one for catching fish on the swing and catching fish while stripping larger streamers. Caddis can be a underrated pattern on the blue but can produce high fish number days. When fishing the Blue in Dillon, nymphing is still the most effective way to catch fish using stonefly imitations, caddis, mysis, and san juan/squirmy worms. A white vanilla bugger or other streamers like the sparkle minnow could also lead to some hook-ups. As for below Green Mountain, dries in the canyon such as caddis, PMXs, and the Panty Dropper hopper could bring fish to the surface, but nymphing will still find you the highest numbers of fish. Try throwing girdle bugs, Smethurst's 20 bomb, micro stone gold, squirmy worms, caddis, CDC jigged pheasant tail, poxyback drake, iron lotus.
