Boulder Creek is banging on all cylinders. There is still plenty of water to fish any stitch between Boulder and Barker. Dry dropper is still banging with hoppers, ants, and beetles. The droppers we are having success with has started to shift to some smaller sized tungsten bead heads. Try droppers sized down to #20. Caddis, BWO, and midge patterns seem to be best these days. The BWO hatches are heating up as well, and small mayfly dries #16-#20 are good from late morning to early evening. Look for the creek to fish great through September and deep into October. As the nights start to cool you may see the fishing slow higher up in the canyon where the temperature drops with altitude. Cold nights may fish better closer to town; warm days you might be able to venture all the way to Castle Rock. Flows are steady at @55cfs and seem to be holding with the recent wet weather. 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. Have fun chasing after your next trophy trout and enjoy nature's beauty!The Rocky Mountain Anglers Crew
