The St Vrain tends to slow down this time of year, but there's still good fishing to be had for the persistent angler. The water is extremely low, making the fish spooky and tippet shy. Additionally, the low water really pools fish up in the Vrain, so focus on anything deeper than your calf, and look to pull a few fish out of the same hole before moving on. Dry dropper and short leash nymphing are both good calls for all sections of the river. Small midges, San Juans, and even BWO's will get eaten. There is some deeper water through the town of Lyons, so that might not be a bad place to start your efforts. Also, keep an eye out for a good Midge hatch around noon- it can be tough to see the risers themselves, but if the bugs are there, the fish are looking up. Smokejumper Midges and Sprout Midges would be go-to's for watching a few eats on the surface.

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.
