It may be November, but the fish in the Creek seem to think we're living in an eternal August! Dry dropper rigs are generally better suited for the low flows we see this time of year, and most of your eats will come off the nymph, but don't be surprised when fish comes up and eats your dry fly either! Think about throwing Blue Winged Olives, as well as smaller attractors such as Ants, Beetles, and small Stimulators, and trailing various bead-head BWO's or Midges off the back. 6x tippet can be a big help this time of year, and the fact that we've seen really low-water conditions for quite some time now makes that even more true. If you're headed out to fish the Creek, save yourself some time and avoid going way up the canyon- the best stretches this time of year are the very bottom portion of the canyon, or anywhere through town, where deeper holes make it easier for the fish to relax and focus on eating. The Browns in Boulder Creek are always willing to chase a small streamer such as a Thin Mint or small Sparkle Minnow, and this is even more true in the Fall. With fish eating dries, nymphs, and streamers, and the best water being so close to home, there's really no excuse not to fish the Creek these days. Get out 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. Have fun chasing after your next trophy trout and enjoy nature's beauty!The Rocky Mountain Anglers Crew
