Trout Unlimited (TU) is the nation’s largest cold-water conservation organization, with 300,000 members
who are dedicated to conserving, protecting, and restoring North America’s trout and salmon fisheries
and their watersheds.

The Project dovetails with the Winter Flow Program, which is led by TU, and is an effort to improve
stream flows on the Conejos River for 5 months during the non-irrigation season (typically November1-
March 31). Recently, a Stream Management Plan (SMP) was completed (Draft) for the Conejos River,
and the SMP used the R2Cross method to identify target flows in this reach that would optimize
available habitat during this time period. The SMP identified 41 cfs as the target flow, and this project
incorporated that figure into the final design.
The project will take advantage of the alteration of the sediment transport regime on this reach due to
the presence of Platoro Reservoir, to create a low flow channel designed for flows 41cfs and lower,
which will improve in-channel habitat, connectivity to complex refuge habitat, and water delivery
conveyance during low flow time periods such as the winter and during droughts. Additionally, the
project will add habitat and stabilize stream banks by re-purposing 240 large rocks on site and adding
(50) 15-25 ft. trees with root wads attached. This project has multiple benefits for ecosystem function
and health, a valued self-sustaining recreational fishery, and will make this section of the Conejos
River more resilient to variable flows into the future.

The purpose of the tournament is to raise funds for Trout Unlimited and in our case the San Luis Valley Chapter of TU. Last year in a pandemic year we had 50 teams come to have fun and compete for the championship.

We raised over $8400 for the chapter and with the Help of the Great Kevin Terry, we hope to turn that into much more.

Over the next few days we will be adding pictures of the project that Kevin was able to complete just before the end of 2021.

Fishing report 8/21 As we enter late August and flows drop, this is the time to check out those steeper sections of the river. Also, you can go check out some of the high country lakes.

Lower: Fishable until about 2pm. Look for caddis and bwo hatches. Nymphing or dry dropper rigs with a stonefly are producing some fish. Also try throwing some of those hopper patterns.

Upper: Check for a bump in flows out of Platoro, this would be a great time to fish the meadows. Bwo, caddis and some larger mayflies producing fish on top. Try a dry dropper set up with a baetis, midge or worm pattern below.

Nice Cutty. Call now 7195563660

Fishing report :
Lower river clear and fishable 8am to about 1pm. With the hotter weather we are recommending early.
Upper river clear and fishing well. BWO's,stimmies, caddis patterns working well.

We are currently pushing for half day guide trips up high with a little extra cost for the long ride.

Call the shop for all your guide trips, updates and flyfishing needs.
