River Statistics:
The road into the Stagecoach tailwater is open. Sarvis Creek SWA road is still closed. For the tailwater section small flies, light tippet, inconspicuous indicators, and split shot are still a necessity. BWO's and midges both nymphs and emergers. Smaller is better...unfortunately. Though there are some great fish to be caught in this section. Don't be afraid to make the hike down to Sarvis Creek. Rarely fished, a little off color; heavier tackle, bigger flies, streamers anyone? yessir! The public sections through town are good from mid morning until early afternoon. Spring runoff is savage and starts early and ends late over there. Deep runs with bigger flies girdle bugs, worms and leeches with #14-18 bh nymphs off like; frenchies, rainbow warriors, p-tails, two bit hookers, zebra midges, micro mayfly, HDA variant, hares ear, guides choice hares ear. That may seem like a lot but basically stone, midge and baetis and caddis nymphs. Slow stripped streamers deep will do the trick well too. The Elk is high but wade/fishable. Similar flies as above. Bang the banks!

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.
