The Colorado continues to drop and is currently @1500cfs. If the trend continues we may start to see high water temps affect the fishing, but for now she is holding and fishing well. Only a few days with the water temps above 60, and that means the bite is solid. Streamer bite is solid, and the hatches are mostly caddis, a few PMD's and some Stones. Tricos too in some areas, and the spinner fall is bringing the fish to the surface by as early as 9am. Hoppers are working but you have to be on the bank or inches away, not feet. Dr dropper has been productive with various droppers under Yellow, Red, or Green Foam Flies. Try PMD Nymphs, caddis larva and pupa,Sallies, Princes, and P tails for the best success. Sometimes smaller is better on the Raddy, so don't rule out some #18 small flashback Barr Emergers or halfback PMD's. Clear below Glenwood too, but starting to warm as the flows drop. The Colorado is fishing good, but Pumphouse is sometime crowded on the weekends.

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.
