The Rado has entered full Fall mode at this point, and there's nothing better to hear from an angler's perspective! Nymphing has been the most productive method in the morning- BWO's, Stones, Midges, and aquatic Worms will be on the menu, as well as a healthy side of eggs from the ensuing Brown spawn. Focus your efforts on the deeper pools, especially around boulders or any other sort of cover for the fish. BWO's are starting to fall off as the overnight lows are dropping more and more. Midges will by your best bet for dry fly eats. A para Adams #16-20 will pull a fish or two, but nymphing will be the most productive. As the evening rolls around, nymphing will again dominate the dojo, but this is also the best time of day to tie on a big articulated piece of meat and see if the fish are willing to take a swipe at it, which as of late they generally have. Fall streamer fishing on the Rado can be downright good, and who doesn't like catching a few fish on flies the size of your hand? Great reports have come from Gore Canyon as the flows have allowed for more wadeable fishing and crossing the river is in play.

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.
