The whole creek is in play, with only the super steep stuff of middle canyon being tough to fish. Dry dropper is still crushing it, and as the flows continue to drop the dry fly bite has been heating up. Hatches include: drakes, PMD's, caddis, red quills, sallies, and still a few Golden Stones. Bigger Fish through town, and plenty of water in the canyon for excellent fishing throughout. Hot Flies are frenchies, Iron Sallies, Z Wing Caddis, Copper Johns, and CDC Pheasant Tail #14. Small Chubbies and Attractor dries in Red, Purple and Yellow as well. The drakes and caddis are thick on the water in the evenings making for a killer happy hour. Boulder Creek is fishing the best of the season, so get on the water today. MM39-36 is good down low, and MM32-29 up top. Get wet.

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
