The Yampa is seeing run off on warmer days. She has been as high as 1000cfs through town already, but recent cold has helped her shape back up. Try san juans, larger stones and mayflies through town under indicators. Fish the edges and softer water, its' cold these days and the fish aren't looking to fight the current this spring. Larger nymphs with more flash have fished best this season through the higher waters in town.

At the tail water the flows are much clearer and lower currently running just over 100cfs. Good BWO and midge hatches at the tail water and Sarvis Creek access. Excellent nymphing with the same bugs, and throw some scuds in the mix as well. Still some spawning fish in certain areas as well, so a glow bug can be productive too. Try a Ray Charles on point with a mercury Black Beaty off the back. San Juans are also productive as the flows at the tail water start to increase. Sarvis is starting to bump as well, and larger flies are better farther downstream in the higher flows.

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
