Sands' Epoxy Mysis, Sands
Mysis shrimp were introduced to several Colorado resevoirs in the 1970's. Most notably the Dillon, Taylor and Ruedi Resovoirs.
If you fish the Blue River, Taylor River or Frying Pan, you'll want some Mysis imitations in your pack. Translucent imitations represent living Mysis Shrimp, and are best fished closer to the dam.
This is a great attractor pattern in these rivers where trout key on the protein-heavy shrimp.
