Anyone been out recently? Coming in 2 weeks

Coming over to camp and fish for my birthday on a long weekend trip from the 3rd to the 8th. Wondering how it's fishing? I plan on hitting Harvey Gap as well but will be camping at Rifle and am planning on at least a couple days there.

I fly fish and will have a trout setup and a heavier weight rod to try and get into some pike and maybe some smallies. Any tips on sizing and colors would be appreciated. I've done well on smaller pike over the years at Harvey but haven't targeted them at Rifle before.

Also @westsloper just saw your pic and realized we know each other lol.

Moved a couple years ago, but fished rifle gap a lot starting in mid-April. In two weeks was the best time of year i did for big smallmouths there. Also, walleyes started to turn on during this time frame. good luck!!
