Boulder Creek is still fishing great! Recent rains have been keeping the flows perfect for the creek below the falls. Above the falls things are pretty skinny, but still fishable. In the skinny water try to have better presentations with smaller tippets. Below the falls the fish are on the feed for most of the day. Look for sporadic caddis mixing with BWO's and midges. Beetles and ants have been good dries, and with flows below 50 cvs the dry fly fishing has been excellent. Try attractor dries in the faster pocket waters, and smaller dries like a Clown Shoe Caddis, or a Purple Haze in the softer water. Smaller Chubbies are also still banging, as is the Hippie Stomper, and thePMX in a variety of sizes and colors. BWO's and midges are starting to be the majority of the hatch, but still seeing some caddis and a few quills as well. Try smaller droppers on your dry dropper rigs. Rainbow Warriors, Poison Tungs, and Micro Mayflies were all good over the last week. Hot stretches have been the steeper reaches bellow Boulder Falls, and the stretch immediately below 4 Mile Canyon. Town has also been fishing great with some real rod benders coming out of the stretch close to the Library and the Justice Center.

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.
