Boulder Creek has been fishing well, but the effects of the Spring weather we've had of late are visible for sure. The creek this time of year can vary from day to day and week to week, depending on weather and runoff conditions. The stretch through town has been productive with streamers, BH leaches, Bread and Butters and Wooly Buggers. Up in the canyon, the warmer weather has the fish looking up, and a variety of dries have picked up good numbers of fish- think Chubbies, 409's, and Stimulators. The weather will also have a lot to do with how you should go about your day: Warmer, sunny days will be perfect for a dry dropper, while the cold days are still more productive with a short leash nymph rig. As far as subsurface bugs go for either setup, try Poison Tungs, Pheasant Tails, or basically anything small with a bead head. We are seeing more and more Caddis show up in the creek. Caddis pupae are a great choice for droppers as well as throwing a dry later in the day on warmer evenings. Make sure to call the shop of the most up to date information on our hometown 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
