Caddis, BWO's, and a few lost drakes and PMD's in some areas. Hopper bite is still holding with the warmer temperatures recently, and hopper dropper has been great through most of the canyon. We are starting to see more fall baetis as well, and the size of bugs that are working best seems to be getting smaller. Small hares ears and bead heads are taking more fish than the larger stones. Try caddis, attractor nymphs, and BWO's under indicators or hoppers these days. Try some small BWO dries down to #20 or #22 if you see noses in the soft water. Larger flies seem to work better in faster pocket waters of the steeper sections, while the softer water and seams are best for the smaller bugs. Streamers have been good as well, and streamers in colors of the fall have been taking colorful browns recently. Look for the aggressive browns to be willing to chase through the month of October, and into November. The whole river is in play, but the stretches closer to the pass will start to be shutting down as the overnight lows continue to drop off. Still in play with dries and nymphs, but soon the nymph bite will certainly be more productive. Look to midges and baetis nymphs with huevos as well by the middle or end of October. For now enjoy the indian summer.

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
