Directions:  The forks of the Saint Vrain meet in the town of Lyons about 12 miles directly north of Boulder. Highway 7 follows the South Saint Vrain upstream to the west, and Highway 36 follows the North Saint Vrain upstream to CR 80, where you can make the left and access more of the stream. There are numerous cottages and cabins along highway 7 and 36 out of Lyons. If you find yourself in Wild Basin or Peaceful Valley and in need of gas and groceries, look to Estes Park to the north on the peak to peak highway, or Nederland to the south on the same road.

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
