With the recent wave of cold and snow Boulder creek is slowing down and locking up(ice in the canyon on any bend that doesn't get the southern exposure)Hatches are starting later in the morning(gentleman's hours)Around 10am, look to your favorite Midge dry for some nice dry eat's through town. In the skinny water try to have better presentations with smaller tippets. Getting underneath a nice light indicator rig with a 2 fly setup should work well through the skinny stuff....maybe 2bithooker #18 with a zebra midge trailed below. With all the road melt and Colorado's famous 50deg winter days we can still have some great fishing right through town. Some real rod benders are still 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
