There have been some great reports from the Poudre in town, small midges and if this awesome weather keeps up we may even start to see some BWO's as early as March. Fishing in the lower canyon is slower and colder as is expected. 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. Look for the water in the canyon to begin to open up as we move closer to spring. Fishing in the lower canyon recently has been hit or miss, and often crowded on weekends. Look for the warmth of the mid day hours to best the best on the Poudre through February. 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. As the sun gets higher, the ice should start to recede, so look for the end of February to open things up on the Poudre. A little early but getting there.

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.
