The flows on South Boulder Creek just rose all the way to 500CFS (current as of 6/13). At these insanely high flows, the river is much better suited for the white water kayakers than us fishermen- best to give it time for the water to come down before you go fish up there. A much better option with a similar time frame would be the Big Thompson directly below Lake Estes, which is about a 45 minute drive and is fishing much better at the moment. If anything, just fish Boulder Creek through town rather than head up towards Walker Ranch- this much water in that river is downright unsafe.

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
