Fishing on Gates of Lodore trip

Will be floating the Gates in October and am wondering about the flyfishing. Can anyone fill me in? Are the opportunities just here and there or is there consistent fishing throughout the 44 miles? Thanks.

Jones Hole is happening. Everything else seemed too silty.

Good fishing

We floated in August and the water was clear. Trout fishing was good (similar to C section) down to the Yampa. Below there we started seeing a number of carp that were willing to eat a nymph. Good fun. We even had a kid catch a pike minnow on a spinner in Split Mountain.

Floated Ladore 3 weeks ago and the Browns bit well day one, and on and off up to Jones hole. JH was good fir Eainbows as usual between creek inlet and big rock 75 yards down river on right. Panther martins fished well from boat when fly fishing wasn't an option. My buddy caught an 8 pound Squaw fish day two from a lunch sand bar. Good luck.

You got a picture of that pikeminnow? If it's that big, that might be one of the largest seen in years.

Just got off the gates....I found the fishing to be much better than anticipated. Most of the fish we smaller than I would have suspected, but it was really quite good. I probably had ten takes down to pot creek. I also did get one big dog, a 23" brown.
