Flows have been steady for the last week and currently resting at 87....they are planning to drop it again in just a few days(early March)... The jump in flows may help with the dry fly bite as we are seeing some warmer days show up on the calendar. Try san juans, stones, or huevos on point; with smaller midge and baetis patterns as the dropper. The warming of the mid day hours has been the best time to fish, and the best time to try dries. We haven't seen much more than midges hatching, but should soon see winter stones. The SBC tail water has been great all winter long, and as long as the flows stay above 15 cfs the ice shouldn't be an issue. Try streamers in the deepest pools below waterfalls and ledges. This is where the larger fish live, and the typically aren't interested in the smaller bugs. Feed em the meat. 13 miles from the shop, this place is special and worth exploring. Good flies are: Rainbow Warrior, Poison Tung, Iron Lotus, Foam Back RS2, Tail Water Tiny, Prince Nymph, Pheasant Tail, and Smaller Copper johns down to #20. Just heard from Denver Water, and the flows here are going to be favorable through April. Get Wet!

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
