Flows at the Big T are now at runoff levels so the dry dropper fishing has now transitioned back to heavy nymph and streamer rigs. To have success this time of year its important to fish the larger flashier fly in the slowest water you can find where the fish will be seeking relief from the higher flows. A nymph rig with a girdle bug on point to a squirmy worm or caddis larva would be a good bet. Some streamers to try would be the goldie, white or natural mini dungeon, sculpzilla, sparkle minnow, drunk or disorderly. If you can get to the tailwater early before the crowds try throwing a small articulated streamer just below the dam with a bunch of weight or a size 14 heavy hook rainbow warrior for a chance at some of the largest fish that call this river home.

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.
