High runoff is making the current in the Yampa River dangerous for people right now, and the fish are under stress as well. Many are spawning, including rainbow trout. The water is murky, too, which means it is harder for fish to find food. The best place to fish right now are the Stagecoach tail waters. Or out of town, it would be the Green River in Utah, or the White River in Meeker. There’s also Green Mountain Reservoir, Grand Lake, Lake Granby, and Flaming Gorge.
