Flows are high on the Poudre, but fishing remains solid above Gateway Park up the Poudre Canyon. Nymphing has been the most productive, larger stones, princes and sparkle worms on point with BWO's, Midge and Caddis off that are all pulling fish. Anglers will be able to get away with 3-4x with the stained water. A few dry fly opportunities in the softer water or tail end of runs. BWO's are on their last leg but we are still seeing a decent hatch during the warmest part of the day, as well as terrestrials. Dry droppers up in the canyon will do well with caddis and general BH nymphs off like princes and smaller stones. 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. Have fun chasing after your next trophy trout and enjoy nature's beauty!The Rocky Mountain Anglers Crew
