The Yampa fishes great at all the access points from Stagecoach, to Chuck Lewis SWA, and downstream to town. At the tailwater, hopper dropper rigs have been fishing great. There are good caddis and PMD hatches and thick tricks as well. Try scuds, sow bugs, and leeches as well for good success. Midges, crane flies, and thin, sparse mayfly nymphs fish good here too. Leeches and streamers can be good as well. Downstream from the tail water, Sarvis Creek access is a good fish with less pressure, but fewer fish. Through town, the trick spinner fall has been good for the morning bite, and caddis as well as hoppers and attractor dries are taking fish. Bright sunny days have been tough with dries, but nymphing stones, caddis and sunken trico spinners are go to bugs. Try flashy streamers in deeper runs early and late in the day as well. Good fishing on the Yampa, but some cool rain would help the water temps stay on the cooler side.

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
