In a word BANGING. Still fishing great above Rollinsville where you have an excellent shot at a grand slam. Look for the wind of opportunity to stet to close bey mid October on the upper reaches of SBC, but they Walker tail water will be good deep into November. Flows are @110, and the bugs are showing up. Caddis, small stones, midges, PMD's and DRAKES. Big gray drakes up to #10's. Last Sunday they were thick come noon, and the fishing was in sane with a parachute adams #10 or #12. This fishery should remain in the sweet spot for the next two months as the water temperature holds deep into fall. Look for red quills to start to show up at the Walker tail water soon as well. Walker Ranch and SBC are banging right now, and pressure seems to be light compared to Boulder Creek. Try dry dropper with smaller midges early, and dries later in the am when the hatches get rolling. Flagstaff road is closed M-Th from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm, so keep that in your head. Downstream at Eldorado canyon State Park the fishing has been solid with attractor dries and terrestrials as well. Flows are low from the state park eastward, but still fishing good with dries or shallow dry dropper rigs. In a word, BANGING!!

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
