Lot's of muddy water...there is still damage from the big flood and with the last few weeks even more. Take it very easy if you do chose to find a sliver of fishable water, the banks are still very fragile from the flood, a large boulder that looks secure could roll out easy. Best to leave the lower stretches of the St.Vrain until next year and some planned river improvements!

West of the peak to peak in Wild Basin will be our best bet this season. Flows are on the rise in the lower valley of the basin....get ready to hike up towards the falls for some fishable pockets...Dry-dropper rigs with a small terrestrial as lead and your fav. Midge dropper should be the ticket. With the flows on the rise a small tandem nymph rig could be useful. A small black stone to a Midge dropper with an indicator on 5x will pull some fish from the deeper pools. Remember that fishing in Rocky Mountain National Park is barbless flies only and no lead(use Bosstin or Mojo Mud to keep your flies deep and legal)

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
