The Creek is running quite high, but there are still some fish to be caught for the persistent angler. The two most fishable areas right now will be either above mile marker 33, or right through town, where the gradient is lower and the water has a chance to slow down a bit. Plan on fishing from the bank- most of the fish will be pinned within a few feet of the banks, and with the high water, wading in is not a good idea. Nymph rigs will be your best bet for the next two weeks or so- think Stoneflies such as Girdle Bugs, 20 Inchers, or Little Black Sloanes, trailing the ever so popular San Juan Worm or Squirmy Worm. No need for 5x this time of year- 3x and 4x should be par for the course until the flows drop. Stripping a streamer through town can also be lights out this time of year- some shop favorites for the Creek include the Goldie, small Sparkle Minnow, or Fat Mint Bugger in size 8 or so. Over the course of the next 10-14 days, expect flows to begin dropping to a more fishable level throughout the river, at which point the standard dry-dropper rig will come back into play.

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.
