The Collie is fishing fantastic on all venues, and will only get better from here until runoff starts! With the Rainbows starting to enter spawn mode, the egg bite is in effect, but the Girdle Bug has been far and away the top producing fly over the past week. The fish certainly have the feedbag on, both on warm and overcast days. Slow stripping a streamer this time of year can be absolutely deadly as well- think Sparkle Minnows, Gongas, or Dungeons. Wade and float fishing tactics have both been productive, with lots of good reports coming back from the Pumphouse area. Gear wise, 3 and 4x tippet should get the job done, so there's no need to get ultra stealthy to pick up fish. This time of year, fish on the Colorado are eating on the surface surface, subsurface, and chasing meat; you've gotta love it when you can fish pretty much whatever technique you're feeling!

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
