Early Summer can be a great time to head North of the border, but it is very hit or miss dependent upon the flows. The usual bugs seem to be putting in work- Leeches, Scuds, Annelids, and a variety of small midges in size 16-18 have all picked up more than their fair share of fish. At these higher Summer flows, wade fishing becomes somewhat of a substantial challenge, but the float guys have been putting in work and catching fish. The higher flows have made for a good streamer bite, and the Bows are willing to chase a piece of meat or larger meal such as a Sparkle Minnow. Closer to the Colorado border in Saratoga, the water is extremely high and off color, making the fishing tough. Call the shop for the most up to date reports on the NP, as runoff has the conditions changing nearly day to day this time of year.

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
