Caddis, Drakes, and Red Quills on the Poudre these days. Some small yellow stones and BWO's as well. Recent reports have been best from the stretches above the narrows where the bugs are thicker, but hopper dropper in the pocket water has been excellent as well. Try soft hackle hares ears, and small stones under Morrish Hoppers in all colors and sizes. Twitch these larger bugs off grassy banks and around structure where the browns lay in wait to ambush larger bugs. Streamers are also a good choice on the Poudre, and the browns have been willing to chase early and late in the day. The evening hatches of Drakes and Red Quills have been the best the day has to offer, especially higher up in the canyon. There are caddis throughout the day, but there seems to be a lack of bugs through the mid day hours when the sun is high. Plenty of water in the Poudre these days, and the whole river has been fishing great. Expect the flows to steadily drop through the remainder of summer, keeping the fish looking up. Good bugs, plenty of access, and crowds are way down now. get on the Poudre, she won't disappoint. Recently mousing has been productive as well. Look for the next full moon around the first week of September to be an excellent time to get out the headlamp. Get bent!

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.
