With the water having finally dropped on the Yampa, wade fishing has become much more of an option, and the fishing is getting better and better each day. Earlier in the day, anglers can expect to see a strong hatch of PMD's, including a few dry fly eaters earlier in the morning. As the weather warms up and thew sun gets higher in the sky, nymphing will become the most productive method on the Yampa, with Caddis, PMD, and Drake nymphs all picking up fish. In the evenings, a strong mix of Caddis and Drakes should pop off just prior to last light, and heads will begin to poke through the surface film looking to crush these larger dries. This is a perfect option for the local angler looking to get away for a weekend or experience some awesome fishing with their days off!

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
