There have been some great reports from the Poudre in town,and the lower canyon is fishing good as well. Fishing has been best or most consistent below the narrows, above it still feels like winter most days, but we should see most of the Poudre "in play" over the next two weeks. The best water to fish is lower canyon below the narrows, and better yet below the confluence with the North Fork. Town has also been good with small flies under indicators or some leeches and crawdad patterns. Often town is hit or miss, and although there are some larger fish, they are sometimes fewer and farther between. Outside of town and in the canyon small stones are moving, mixing with midges and mayflies to give the fish plenty to feed on. Try stones and attract nymphs under indicators in the softer water. Drop smaller midges and mayflies of the back, and fish your rig in 3-5 foot of water. Fish seem to be sitting in softer water, not working too hard for the few bugs that have been moving. Good dry fly fishing on the North Fork tail water and downstream of the confluence, especially on overcast days. Small BWO's and midges, or dry dropper with small stones and smaller attractor dries. A good nymph this spring has been a tungsten soft hackle olive or pheasant tail down to #18 or #20. In heavier water try stones or even a leech on point with the smaller droppers on 5x. Starting to have more fishable water, and seeing more bugs. Feed bag on!

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
