Spring run-off has started to hit the Colorado more and more each day. Pumphouse to Radium or Rio Rancho has been a popular trip lately and reports have come back with the girdle bug bite heating up with salmonflies starting to release. The stonefly hatch is just around the corner and as the days warm up, look to throw a large dry dropper rig along the banks. Keep an eye out for the adult salmon flies on the reeds, brush and trees along the banks. You see bugs its a good idea to throw on a dry #4-6. Streamer bite has also been heating up as flows bump up, black and white seem to be the color of choice for these nice sized browns, think Sparkle Minnows, Gongas, or Dungeons. With the higher water, expect to fish some thicker tippet- 2 and 3x is no problem at all on this river. As the warm weather continues to increase snowmelt, expect the river to keep coming up over the coming weeks. Give the shop a call to get the latest report as conditions change daily on the Collie.

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.
