As is expected the flows have come up from 9cfs.... hanging steady under 50cfs for a few weeks until they get ready for some snowmelt. Fishing has been good below Gross Reservoir with Dry-droppers and light nymph rigs, you'll find fish to be a little spooky but still willing to take a well placed fly! Longer leaders and light tippet can help with the presentation.... 9' 5x leader and 5x/6x tippet should be fine. On a recent trip to the lower portion of Walker Ranch we found fish in the usual low water holding spots, water between 1-3ft of depth and in or around an eddy or directly below a plunge pool. Fishing dries has been an option on some lower portions of SBC...fishing through Eldorado canyon has been great with the bump in flows....either a dry dropper w/stonefly below or get ready to nymph the deeper pockets with a girdle bug to small black pheasant tail.....lot's of midges are still popping if your looking for the best dry bite.

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
