River Statistics:
The Creek has been fishing OK through town and out to the east. If things are a little off-color, try small streamers and flashier attractor nymphs or worm/leech patterns. With snowfalls where temps then swing back to being warmer, look for some fun fishing in the stained water with small streamers like baby gongas, mini dungeons, thin mints, sculpzillas, etc. That being said, a short-leash nymph rig is usually the move for the Creek in winter. Palsa pinch-on foam indicators are great with a couple of nymphs running underneath. Split shot is rarely needed (unless you're really getting down in some of the deeper pools), so run bugs like tungsten P tails, micro stones, two bit hookers, small leeches, small caddis larvae, etc. in the lead to give your rig some weight. Whether you're using an indicator or not, Euro-style jig flies like the Spanish Bullet and HDA Variant can be a great way to get a short nymph rig down without needing split shot. Good bets for trailing bugs include any sort of RS2, soft hackle greys, mercury black beauties, disco midges, etc. Look for a possibility of some good dry fly action in the afternoon on warmer days if a nice hatch of midges happens. Just remember: **Check codot.gov for latest updates on canyon closures.**

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.
