The Yampa has been fishing good this fall and we expect more of the same tip the snow starts to fly. Try dry dropper rigs on warmer days, but nymphing has started to be the better method as the temperatures cool off. The bigger bugs are starting to fade, but we are still seeing some caddis showing up. Try stones or scuds on point, with smaller mayfly and midge droppers. Glow bugs should start to be good as well any day now. We are seeing more browns showing up through town, and they are showing colors of the fall, all golden to orange. Town has excellent access and great water making for some excellent fishing for any angler.

The tail water has a smaller stretch of water, and fishes good with lighter tippets and smaller flies. Try a small annelid or crane fly on point, with small scud, mayfly, or midge as the trailer. Use some some fluorocarbon 6x when fishing the tail water. Longer leaders, smaller indicators, and sometimes less weight than you think; all things that will have you into more fish at the Stagecoach tail water on the Yampa.

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
