Fishing good through town and up into the lower canyon. From Sugarloaf downstream has been the most productive with nymphs, town has been banging with streamers and dries on the warmer days. Small stones are mixing in with midges, and some olives have been seen recently as well. The dry dropper fishing is starting to take off as well, and gets red hot by April when we see the stones and olives become much thicker. A shallow 2 fly nymph rig seems best for now. If town is off color and too muddy from flood clean up, try fishing either close to 4 Mile Canyon, or up by the tunnell. Fishing access improve through this month as the creek continue to shed ice. Look for stretches above Sugarloaf to fish best on warmer days, or by months end. Overnight lows influence the next days fishing this tiome of year, so town is a great spot to start if you head out early. Good flies continue to be small Prince Nymphs, Rainbow Warrior, Zebra Midges, Poison Tungs, Iron Lotus, Jigged Ptails, JuJuBaetis, and Hares Ears. Try san juans in the stained water. Look for smaller attractor dries to fish good through the warmest part of the day. Evening midge hatches get thick by the end of March as well. Getting there!

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.
