River Statistics:
The Vrain is fishing pretty well, and all forks are fishable. Trips coming back from Wild Basin are experiencing good dry fly fishing, seeing some bigger mayflies (drakes) as well as doing well with smaller terrestrials. Fish are now at times seeming to be looking for slightly smaller bugs on the rig as water has come down, so Para Adams in #16-18 can be your friend in a big way if fish are being a little hesitant to come to something like a chubby or hopper. Downstream from here, highway 7 is fishing well in pockets and riffles with many fish looking up! As you venture even further downstream, the town of Lyons is doing great. One thing to consider while fishing in town is the river is being used by many other folks recreationally with tubing, swimming, etc. This can be tough to fish around at times, so driving upstream is a good way to get away from them. Give this local stream a shot, another solid option for catching trout without having to drive a distance.

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.
