Some in our group in late June did very well in jones hole creek, they didn't fish much on the green, and only after the state line (no colorado license)

When the water is clear we've done OK in the upper canyon with spinners. Some trout do migrate down from the dam. Landed a large (20 in) rainbow in a riffle near Pot Creek once. On another trip a friend landed a rainbow, a brown and a catfish on illegal bait. DOW pulled some big Walleye out last year with the shock treatment. The mouth of Jones Hole along the bank has been good for medium size escapees that come down from the hatchery and then grow larger in the river. The Creek itself also has small fish that can be take on flies. Worth casting and adds variety to the trip.
