The recent cold weather snap has frozen most of the St. Vrain up again, and it'll take a few days of sun to open back up and really be a fishable option throughout the upper reaches. There will be some open water in the spots that see the most daylight, but walking a ways from hole to hole can certainly be expected. With that being said, we've had good reports from plenty of fisherman on the lower river, fishing anywhere from Lyons all the way down to the town of Longmont! Nymphing and streamers are by far your best bets. San Juan Worms up top with midges underneath are a good place to start, but don't hesitate to throw most anything in your box at these fish, as you never know what they're going to eat. Slow stripping a crayfish imitation is a great way to turn a few fish, and ups your chances of tying into one of the larger fish that the Vrain has to offer. Personal favorites from the guys at the shop include Ritt's Fighting Crayfish, The ClawDad, and the Near-nuff Crayfish, all of which can be deadly. If you don't mind a little more urban setting in exchange for a shot at some above-average sized fish and lots of open water, the lower reaches of the St. Vrain are a good spot to keep in mind this month!

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.
