Boulder Creek is getting better every day. The fishing has been solid in town, and out of town has been improving daily with the warmer days. Ice is receding in the lower canyon making the waters from Dome Rock to sugarloaf in play. It is still best from the falls downstream to town, but each week should see more water open up and come into play. There are construction projects just outside of town, and up 4 Mile that are making the waters dirty sometimes, but still fishable. Waters that run clear at 9am may be dirty by late morning, then clear again when the projects end work for the day. Try brighter flies, or larger flies in the stained waters; or just move upstream for clearer waters. Best flies have been: huevos, san juans, rainbow warriors, and stones through town. Outside of town, Jujubees, poison rungs, and Zebra midges have fished best. Starting to see some risers through the warmest part of each day as well. Try small midges, attractor dries, or even small dry dropper rigs these days. Nymphs are still best, but with all the folks saying that fish are eating their indicators, I bet a red Hippie Stomper would get eaten. With every new warm day we will see more and more of our home water open up and fish well....Stay close to home and get bent on Boulder creek!!

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
