Similar to many of our river closer to home, the Poudre is fishing well with a variety of small midges. There will be plenty of ice on the water, so watch where you are stepping and be prepared to move a good bit between holes. As far as gear section, expect to being throwing 5 if not 6x, and the smallest, most inconspicuous indicator you can find (white Palsa's are a great choice). Keep your head low, and move with purpose to avoid spooking fish. Top flies should be things like the Zebra Midge, Mercury Midge, and Cardinal midge, as well as small attractors like a Blue Poison Tung in sizes 18 and below. On the warmest days, you might see one or two heads pop through the surface right at midday; try a small midge dry such as a Sprout Midge to fool these fish if you see them.

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
