Fun fishing with fish up to 19" mostly on nymph rigs in the morning (8-2pm). Fished the upper half of the property from 5-9pm which was hot on dries (caddis, PMD emerges #12). The water was a little warm, and flows were down which meant no fishing in the braided channels which had been good other times I visited the property. Overall - perhaps 16-18 fish landed. The good holes had lots of action - but not much in-between with most fish holding near top of the holes in the riffles. A few boaters came through fishing - so it looks like the river gets some pressure in this reach. Most fun for sure was dry fly fishing near dark with caddis. ~ Paul W -- July 23rd, 2016

My first time on this beautiful steetch of the Yampa. Fished from the downstream border back up to the middle of the property (7 hrs or so). Many smaller fish, with 1 rainbow and 1 brown over 20" landed. No consistent fly: pat's rubber leg in tan and small beadhead Barr's emerger worked best with some on medium sculpin streamer pattern. ~ Mike Narkewicz -- July 17th, 2016

Tough day on the Hogue. Snowshoed in from the parking area about 10am. River low and clear. Three guys landed 10 fish 15-22 inches, all bows except one brown. Plenty of midges but only caught fish on pats rubber legs, pink worm. Streamers were a bust. Saw no redds, no ice shelves but difficulty getting around with deep bank snow. Snow was slush on 50 degree, blue sky day snowshoe out at 6pm. ~ Dentalboy -- March 14th, 2016

Beautiful day --60cfs. No hatches except a very small grey mayfly. No fish in AM. Fish turned on about 2 PM and had excellent fishing for about 2 hours using small yellow egg pattern and olive RS-2. Many small bows , mid sized browns and several large bows . Several chases on streamer but no hookups. Browns are already spawning--please watch out for, and avoid the beds. ~ Dave M -- October 11th, 2012

Water is low but still a good enough flow. Caught about 10 quality fish. One brown was 24 inches and at least 5 pounds. Also caught several rainbows in the 18- to 19-inch range. Best fly was the Flash Back Beadhead Pheasant Tail s16. One rainbow was caught on a hopper on a hopper/dropper combination and one smaller one on a red San Juan Worm. ~ JD -- September 25th, 2012
