The Reef and Freemont have performed the best this spring. The low water in Pathfinder has perhaps hampered the fishing at the Mile. The best fishing at the Mile has been above the bridge in the canyon. Stones and leeches with glow bugs a close second. Try streamers as well in the softer water. The flows at the Reef have risen to 1500 cfs and the fishing is borderline ridiculous. The water is still cloudy below the bridge, but the upper 11 mile has been fishing great. Try leeches, reef worms, baetis nymphs, scuds, sow bugs, and midges. The Barr Emerger is performing well as are RS2's. Still a solid egg bite as well, and the streamer fishing has improved as has the water temperature, The tail waterts in this system will provide costant conditions in a year when run off will be above normal across the area. Dry fly fishing at the Reef is sporadic for now, but improves as things clear and stabilize. Look for the BWO to be the major hatch, while the subsurface feed include crawdads, minnows, leeches, scuds, worms, cranefly, annelid, etc. On Fire!

Saratoga and the surrounding area is off color and too muddy these days. Cooler weather may shape things up, but maybe not. Try one of the tail water stretches or the Encampment.

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.
