The Platte is fishing good from the State Line to the tail waters around Casper. As the flows drop look to the tail waters to provide the more consistent fishing. @Saratoge is seeing caddis and tricos along with a few sallies and larger golden stones. Hopper dropper has fished best. With cooler temperatures at night, the weeds have been releasing. This has made the river below the dam quite weedy, however below the bridge and through the Town of Casper is very clear in terms of water clarity. The flows are on the way down and if the continue to drop the best fishing will be early and late in the day. Crawfish patterns and streamers with yellow or orange legs are best. The Golden stones started to come off a few weeks back at the Mile, which ids fishing great at 1500cfs. Stones, scuds, leeches, san juans, caddis and mayfly nymphs have fished best under indicators. The dry dropper fishing with big foam dries is still OK but best with cloud cover. The Mile should continue to fish well this summer, and the reservoirs are all full so the fall run of browns should be something to look forward to. Around Casper the fishing is good with Caddis, and terrestrials up top. Tricos have started and the clear waters are bringing fish to the surface these days. Good nymphs are Barr Emergers, Hares Ears, scuds, leeches, annelids, caddis larva and pupa, RS2's Split Foam, Sparkle Wing RS2's, Black Mayhem Midge, BWO's and PMD's. The streamer bite has been ok with the right skies. The hopper bite is heating up with the weather and the wind downstream of Casper. Dry dropper on float trips is starting to get good. Fish a leech under a Morrish Hopper or a Chubby Chornobyl. Tungstones are also taking fish. Skating Caddis in the evenings is hot too.

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.
