Flows at Walker have dropped to @17 cfs, and will most likely stay at this flow for about2 weeks before it jumps back to around 100. Look for the low flows to be good for dry fly fishing or streamers through the deepest pools. It still fishes good at this flow, and many larger fish get caught by fishing streamers through the deeper plunge pools and waterfalls that are found through Walker Ranch. Hatches right now are still good and consist of: PMD's Red Quills, Caddis, Midges, and BWO's. Shallow nymph rigs or dry dropper will fish best over the next several weeks. With flows this low, the fish can see every bug on the water, so you might do great with small ants, beetles, and dries like a parachute adams or small caddis. Good number of rusty spinners around in the latter half of the day as well. Small parachute adams were killing it just a few days ago. Low flows through Walker will let ice form as soon as the first real cold weather hits, but for now the forecast is very favorable and warmer than average. Above Rollinsville is still fishing good, and flows are running just over 50 cfs, but slowly dropping. Stimulators, and Caddis were recently good flies on this stretch, and the warmer weather has kept the bite solid. Dry dropper as some smaller streamer patterns have also fished well through here. Try rainbow warriors, or copper johns under stimulators, or hippie stompers if fishing above Rollinsville. Look for overnight lows to really play a part in what you see through this stretch of water. It has been fishing best from 10:30-3pm, and good numbers of fish on dries as well. Get it while the window is still open.

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.
