Similar to many of our streams close to home, the Poudre is fishing well with a variety of different tactics and techniques. The fish are still very much so keyed in on dries, and BWO's fished on the surface can make for some spectacular days out on the river right now. Dry dropper rigs are always a shop favorite, so consider fishing a BWO dry up top with a small bead-head BWO or Midge nymph below to cover twice as much water and pick up a few extra eats throughout the day. If for some reason you aren't finding success up top, switch up to a double nymph rig and adjust your depth until you find the fish hanging along the bottom of the water column. The flows are somewhat low at the moment (53CFS as of Oct 30), so be sure to fish light tippet (6x is best) and maintain a low profile as to avoid spooking fish before you even get a shot at them. In the evening hours, throwing a smaller streamer can also be a great way to target some of the larger fish the Poudre has to offer- Thin Mints, Wooly Buggers, and small Crayfish can all be productive.

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
