Flows are steady at @125cfs. Plenty of bugs throughout the day as well. PMD's, caddis, stones, and some BWO's still around. Dry dropper has been good, but the sunny days have been best with nymphs for sure. The magic hour has been from 6pm tip zero dark thirty. Tons of egglayers coming back to the water as the things cool off. Streamers too, and the crowds are way down at that time of day. The mornings have been good with RS2's and stones under indicators, and Jujubaetis, Rainbow warriors, and Poison Tungs will have your line tight as well. Try extended body PMD's during the hatch, and X-Caddis during the appropriate times. Fishing good, but starting to see water temps rising, so look to the mornings and evenings to fish best when things really get hot.

The Ultimate Fly Fishing Report
Casting a fly in a tranquil mountain stream, feeling the tug on the line, and holding a beautiful rainbow trout makes us feel alive and intensely connected with nature. Fly fishing is our way of life and we are blessed with hundreds of nearby rivers and streams just a short distance away from Boulder. From the swift spring waters of the Clear Creek to the meandering bends of the South Platte, it's critical to consider fishing conditions in advance and prepare accordingly. We rely on our experienced guides who venture into the wild to let us know which rivers favor fly fishing, where fish are biting, and which fly patterns are most effective. Planning a successful fishing trip also requires knowledge of stream flows at various river points and an accurate weather forecast for a given destination. At Rocky Mountain Anglers, we are dedicated to providing all avid anglers with detailed and timely information about hatches, water, and weather conditions. So before you head out the door on your next fishing adventure, visit our web site to find valuable information that will prepare you for a successful trip. Have fun chasing after your next trophy trout and enjoy nature's beauty! The Rocky Mountain Anglers Crew
