Fishing on SBC remains good to stellar this Fall, and now that the flows have stabilized at a happy 60CFS, things should on;y continue to get better. Dry dropper rigs are the name of the game, and as with near everywhere else, BWO's and midges are the top menu items right now. Fishing Attractor dries with double BWO/Midge nymphs below is a great way to start the morning off, and you can transition into a BWO dry as the Sun gets higher in the sky. The water on South Boulder Creek is low and clear, so move with purpose and fish small indicators, light tippet, etc. as to not blow your cover. Cloudy days can be a great time to tie on a streamer, which can produce some larger than average fish in the Kayak Run section of river. Lower down through town, Brown trout are starting to spawn in SBC coming out of Cherryvale. These fish are always willing to eat a large stonefly, egg, or chase down a streamer as they prepare to build Redds and continue their life cycle. If you fish this stretch, please be cautious not to target fish actively spawning, and watch your step to avoid redds.

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.
