Summer can be a fantastic time to hit the N.P, with the fish eating a variety of bugs both on the surface and subsurface. Mornings and evenings have been the best time to get an eat, as there can be a midday lull with the high sun and hot temps making the fish a tad lazy. Floating the Reef is always a fan favorite this time of year, but don't count out the Mile either, which can produce some extremely high numbers days and healthy fish. The usual Reef sections, including leeches, aquatic worms, and annelids, are all fishing well, complimented by a really strong Mayfly (PMD) bite. For the dry fly aficionado, look to eddies and pockets of soft water for pods of noses breaking the surface, and try a PMD dry trailing an emerger to tag a few of these fish. Throwing large dry-dropper or even dry-double dropper rigs with large hoppers up top and Mayfly nymphs below can be a fun way to work the banks and coerce a few extra eats as well. Last but not least, a streamer such as a Sparkle Minnow or Goldie on a slow strip can be nothing short of deadly this time of year, and you might even tie into one of those fabled North Platte Big Dog Browns!

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.
