Still banging in the lower canyon and through town. The warmer weather has kept the buffet open and the fish are putting on the feed bag. Small midge and mayfly nymphs like a Brassie, WD50, Zebra Midge,or Rainbow Warrior seem to be taking fish through the meat of the day. Do not rule out streamer fishing the creek. We have seen plenty of fish pushing the 20 inch mark this fall and winter, most of which have first tried to eat a smaller fish already on the line. Try a Sculpzilla or Sparkle Minnow through the deeper pools and runs with good structure where a big boy would hang out. No doubt, the creek has been overproducing this season, and the last few days have been nothing short of excellent. This time of year, the fishing is usually best from 10am to about 3pm, or the warmest portion of the day. Look for the fish to be closer to the bottom of deeper runs and pools, or in the tailouts. Dry fly fishing is somewhat slow, but just today someone came in and had caught 2 on a Chubby Chornobyl, and last weekend during the Creek clean Up we watched an angler catch a chunk of a brown on a Stimulator. Still fishing good on the creek, the first week of December!

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
