The Colorado is fishing well right now, but you gotta stay downstream of the Williams Fork confluence for open water. Small black midges and RS2's have been good bugs, along with the occasional stonefly eat. Look for February to be the month this river really wakes up, and opens up. Right now she is only a 2 or 3 out of 5, but february brings more sun, better bugs, and improving conditions. Look for fish in softer seams and tail outs where they do not have to work too hard for the small midges and mayfly nymphs they are feeding on. Still a good chance of there being some cold weather, so try to pick a more favorable day and not be fishing in sub freezing or zero degree weather. We haven't seen any midges above Kremmling, but from Pumphouse down, there are sporadic midges that get thicker as the sun tilts back to the north. A standard set up for the Raddy is a stone on point, to a small Black Beauty or RS2 dropper. Dry fly action is still only a bit of a dream, but we should start to see some sippers with the warmth of February. Good flies are Girdle Bugs and San Juans on point with droppers: Medallion Midges, Copper Johns, Pheasant Tails, Zebra Midges, Rainbow Warriors, and Black Beauties. The Colorado gets better through February, so think about this one after mid month for sure.

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.
