Haven't heard a bad report on the Colorado since she was 8000cfs, and that was almost two month ago. The flows are stable and dropping slowly, currently @1300cfs. Recent rains have helped to bump things up and the float fishing continues to be rock solid with nymphs, dries, and streamers. Look for this excellent fishing to continue through the fall, with the good water year we are having. Nymphs have been producing better than dries recently, but fish are still looking up, especially along the rip rap banks with good structure and cover. Good nymphs to hang under your hoppers continue to be smaller PMD and caddis #16-#18. The girdle bug has been producing as well, but seems to be better in the canyon stretches or faster water. Other flies to try would be: small sally nymphs, san juans, caddis larva and pupa, midges, copper johns, and Barr Emergers. Eggs have been starting to take fish as well on the Colorado and her tributaries. Recently Parshall was slamming with Girdle Bugs and san juans. The streamer bite has been great as the river has had good water all season. Try dry dropper to the edges, or nymph rigs if the runs and pools are deeper. We are seeing hatches switch to smaller stuff like midges and BWO's with a few caddis mixed in. Still some tricks and lost PMD's as well, and maybe even a lost red quill. Buggy and fishing great this year. Floating all stretches has been great. Again, nothing but solid reports for the last 6 weeks, and it sounds like everything is working. Banging on the Colorado this year.

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.
