Springtime is a great time to head North of the border- the Reef, Mile, and Fremont canyon have all been on fire! The usual bugs seem to be putting in work- Leeches, Eggs, Annelids, and a variety of small midges in size 18-20 have all picked up more than their fair share of fish. Wade and float fishing have both been productive on the Reef, but getting out early and being one of the first guys on the water will help your day substantially. With Pathfinder Res at the highest it's been in almost ten years, the Rainbows are moving into the Mile with ease, making for fantastic nymphing and streamer fishing opportunities- who doesn't like to catch a big, angry Bow on an articulated Sparkle Minnow?! Finally, the fish in Fremont are in the midst of their spawn, and fish are actively feeding below the riffles in hopes of putting on some extra pounds as the bows do their thing. The North Platte is what could be considered a "shop favorite" this time of year, and should be on your radar as a spot to fish ASAP. Last but not least, regardless of where on the N.P. you decide to fish, please watch your step and be sure to avoid fishing to or walking over Redds.

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
