The water on the Collie is high, but certainly fishable and actually quite productive for those willing to fish it. Fish are stacked up on the banks, and most strikes are coming within 5, 3, and even 1 foot of the bank. SALMONFLY's are starting to pop, but the high muddy water is keeping most fish off the surface for the time being. The top producer has been an Orange/Black Girdle Bug to a San Juan about 6 feet under an indicator. Fly selection hasn't seemed to matter nearly as much as depth- try adding weight and moving your indicator around before switching bugs. Other flies catching fish include eggs, 20 Inchers, and some bright streamers. Keep an eye on the flows, because when that water comes down... Dry. Fly. Heaven!

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. Have fun chasing after your next trophy trout and enjoy nature's beauty!The Rocky Mountain Anglers Crew
