Icy along the South Branch out of Lyons. The North has a lot of ice as well, and the water is muddy. Heavily affected by the flooding last September, the best bet is upstream on the North or south when the ice recedes. West of the Peak to Peak starts to fish by the middle of April. Try a shallow two fly rig using some tungsten bead heads like a Poison Tung, Rainbow Warrior, or Iron Lotus. Try small midges if you see any risers, but nymphs usually outperform this time of year. Fishing improves with the lengthening of days. There may be some opportunities around Golden Ponds this spring as well, but for now icy and muddy conditions are making it all but impossible.

Stretches of the Vrain closer to the Peak to Peak will start to wake in April.

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
