The fishing in the branches of the Saint Vrain has recently picked up as the waters are lower and warming. Good hatches of PMD's and Drakes are developing in Wild Basin, and Caddis are thick along most reaches of the south and middle forks. Yellow sallies in some ares too. It is fishing best higher up closer to the Peak to Peak highway and in RMNP. A great set of streams with good pocket water and excellent dry dropper fishing. In the absence of a hatch try attractor dries with smaller bead heads like Psycho Princes and Copper Johns. If you see drakes, a #12 Parachute Adams works well. Check out Wild Basin and he North Branch for a good chance at a grand slam. The South has good numbers of brookies and a few Cuts too. The middle has a strong population of browns and brooks too. Best stay upstream of Lyons for the best fishing. Fishing great on the branches of the Saint Vrain. Try the Ceran upstream of Jamestown with ants and beetles. Ants work really well on the South as well.

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
