The Blue below Dillon is crushing at 323 CFS currently, which can be a double-edged sword in terms of the fishing. Depending on the day, you may be able to get away with some bigger sub-surface patterns, and even some bigger dry flies, or you might find it incredibly challenging to find fish and get a fly in front of them. As always with high water conditions, look for walking-paced water, slow back eddies and pools, etc., as the fish should be podded into these sort of spots. Worms, leeches, mysis, and bigger caddis larvae are great point flies for high water below Dillon. Venturing above Dillon can be fun with a dry dropper as we hit spring, and heading down to the lower stuff below Green Mountain Reservoir can also be worthwhile. If you head to the Blue Below Green, this section is actually at a lower and more wadeable 250-300 CFS as of now in mid-June with flows at 206.Flows were just bumped, so as the water gets warmer there should be a caddis hatch. Good time to try a stimulator trailed by a size 20 caddis. Sub surface would be a good time early morning to try caddis emerges, small midges, nymphs and worms. As always, it's a good idea to bring a buddy if you wade fish down here, as crossing and wading this river is never a walk in the park, even at relatively lower 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
