This little hidden gem is giving up some of its best fishing of the year. Fishing has been good all day long, and evenings are bringing dry fly heaven with Drake adults and cripples. Hiking in from Ethel Harold trailhead will eliminate most of the other angling traffic that the Kayak Run sees, and is definitely worth the hike. Fishing dry-dropper is a surefire method to success, and all the flies listed below should make for some action. A few anglers have reported a decent streamer bite during the afternoons when the storms roll in.

Fishing above Gross Reservoir has also been good, with San Juans and Stones picking up some bigger Rainbows. The hike in from the parking lot to the inlet will take under an hour, but that keeps most anglers away and rewards the few who venture in. Above Rollinsville, flows are getting low, but there are still fish to be had on PMDs and small terrestrials. Be sure to drop by the shop or give us a call to get the most up to date SBC report, as there is almost always a fresh update coming into the shop every morning.

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
