The creek through the town of Lyons is shaping quickly, flows have come down and the water is clear. The fish in town will take some time to bounce back from the flood so look to the headwaters for some consistent fishing...The Vrain through Wild Basin in Rocky Mountain National Park is heating up with higher temps. Good reports with general attractor nymph's,larger stones(as your lead fly) and of course the trusted san juan worm. The lower stretch of the Saint Vrain in R.M.N.P is going to be your best bet...Ouzel, Thunder and Sandbeach lake should be on your summer hit list. Wild Basin is often less crowded than other sections of the Park and if you hike a mile getting even further from the crowds your fishing can get epic! Flows near the Ceran St. Vrain Trailhead are looking promising and are coming down daily...also head to Peaceful valley for some less traveled fishing on the middle fork!

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
