The past few weeks on Boulder Creek have been absolutely fantastic, and the rest of the month should be nothing but the same! The water above the Falls is getting skinny, but everything below is fishing unbelievable. Dry fly fishing has been nothing short of stellar in the mornings and evenings, while the mid day heat has more fishing eating subsurface on a variety of nymphs. The deeper holes in town are starting to stack up with fish between 30th and Eben G Fine, and most every pocket has a fish behind it. The recent bump in flows (Up 50cfs on 8/27) really has the fish putting the feedbag on, and all sorts of bugs are continuing to pop- everything from Caddis to PMDs to Drakes and Quills. The terrestrial bite has also been off the charts, and walking through the grass makes it easy to see why; Hoppers seem to appear out of midair with most every step you take. If you'd be interested in giving back a little to the creek that gives us anglers so much enjoyment, be sure to stop by on September 13th for our Second Annual Creek Cleanup. Meet time is at 9am, we'll go out and clean the river until noon, and then come back for a cookout from 12-3. Brats, Burgers, Beers, and plenty of door prizes from companies such as Patagonia and Sage to keep everyone well-equipped. Can't argue with that!

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
