Dropping and clearing, dropping and clearing the trend across the state continues and the Poudre is no exception. Fishing all along the Cache has been nothing short of spectacular. Water clarity is up as well as temperatures and this has really allowed the bug activity to increase. Dry-dropper rigs are going to be the standard for the Cache. Hoppers and Cicadas are the terrestrials of choice. Larger tippet, 3-4X, is acceptable as well, not only to help with he size of the fish but with the willows and trees that line the river as well. Droppers that have been producing are caddis pupa and larva as well as p-tails and midge patterns. BH nymphs should be 12-20 inches below the dropper for best success. Last but not least as far as fly selection, consider tossing a streamer into the mix for a shot at one of the bigger fish this river has to offer. Streamers will be more effective lower in the canyon and through town. Sparkle minnows, sculpzillas and buggers. Be sure to check the current flows before heading up to the river, as the water will continue to rise through these next few weeks, and it's no fun to drive an hour to a river only to have it be blown out. Call the shop for the most up to date flows and conditions.

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.
