Still fishing good even with the latest drop in air temp...lots of the water that had opened from the last few weeks of spring weather have ice'd down...Town will be your best bet until we see some warmer days. Top flies have been: Rainbow Warriors, Poison Tungs, Zebra Midges, Pheasant Tails, San Juans, Glow Bugs, and Hares Ears to name a few. Not too much of a top water bite yet, but the midges and stones are starting to move, and we should see surface activity be best on warmer days and by months end. The creek has been fishing good all day long. Try nymphs under indicators early in the day, and on a warmer day you can do some dry dropper by noon. Nymphing is definitely best right now, and dry dropper hasn't been great, but we are seeing a few fish coming up to the dry now and then. If fishing dry dropper try a Parachute Adams, Griffiths Gnat, or small attractors with tungsten droppers @ size #16-#20. Streamers too, especially if you see a larger brown harassing a smaller fish at the end of your line. This winter has seen some larger browns up to 24 inches at the bottom of Boulder anglers nets. Good numbers of Cut Bows too thanks to Boulder Fish and Game who normally stock the kids ponds.

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
