One of my favorite times to be on the creek right now. Feed bag is on! A variety of dries will bring fish to the surface: foam terrestrials, caddis, PMD, yellow sallies, golden stones and midge patterns all doing well. Dry-dropper rigs are the go to. If you haven't got your hands on one already, stop by the shop and try the pre-rigged Boulder Creek Specials. All of the shop favorite flies rigged up and ready for you to hit BC. Creek is fishing great throughout the canyon. Even though the falls is still dumping a good portion of water in from North Boulder Creek, the lower reaches are still fishing extremely well. Softer water along the banks, behind structure and along seams all are ideal holding locations for these advantageous browns. The Creek is fishing great sun-up till sun-down. My personal favorite time to hit it is from 3 till sun down. Caddis are all over the river. Single dry fly enthusiasts are rejoicing. A #16 tan Better Foam Caddis is all you need. 5x is the norm now as the water is in prime form and fishing is fantastic. Try to keep the feet moving while fishing the creek. Fish one spot for 5 minutes then move on. More water = more fish to the bag. In through town you gotta watch out for the rubber hatch on the weekends (tubers) but it can still fish wonderfully even though there are swaths of college kids enjoying their time. If your fishing do everyone a favor and try and pick up a piece of trash, its all of our local water so do your part and help out. Get out there!!

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.
