The Yampa River is receiving additional daily water releases from Stagecoach Reservoir for the next few weeks. Brett noted that the release of water has enabled the river's fish to be more active and he recommends casting a line near the Sarvis Creek area. Also, we can thank the low night-time temperatures for keeping the river cooler, allowing us to fish into the afternoon instead of just in the morning.
