The Yampa can be your winter Paradise Lost. She is ice free through town, and fishing good through town or at the tail water. Below Stagecoach look for midges, sow bugs, and scuds to be productive under indicators. Try small flies on light tippets, and fluorocarbon WILL get you more eats. Try small midge larva and emergers behind a Ray Charles. The dry fly bite at the tail water has been good from @11am til 3pm. A trailing shuck midge or Matts Midge has been taking fish with a good downstream drift. Other good flies have been huevos, crane fly larva, or a small pine squirrel leech. Through town small winter stones have been good on point with a smaller midge or baetis nymph below. Fish the deeper pools and runs as well as the tail outs of these areas. Some folks are catching a few here and there on glow bugs as well. Larger stones on point are not out of the question either. The Yampa has been fishing great this winter. Remember the road closure at the tail water through March.

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
