    Tailwaters in CO have been changed during the shutdown, but the water isn't usually owned by the Feds even if the dams are, so it did not surprise me.

    Impressions: I hate rain. The fish didn't seem to mind it as much, however. Almost no bugs, just a spotty BWO hatch around 2 pm, although fish rose to caddis, ants, and hoppers on the sunny days. ...
