Rocky Mountain National Park is now open but you must have a reservation to enter currently. The fishing has been really good so far on both Glacier Creek and the Big Thompson through Moraine Park. The upper lakes are starting to ice off with the lower elevation lakes being fishable right now. Dry dropper rigs have been working well in the park. Dries to try include hopper patterns such as the Chubby Chernobyl, Panty Dropper Hopper and 409 Hoppers, caddis are starting to show along with PMDs and other mayflies. I would try Elk Hair Caddis, Royal Wulff, Parachute Adams, Extended body PMD and BWOs along with Yellow Sallys on top. Some good nymphs to fish are your golden stones, caddis nymphs (cased and pupa patterns), Pheasant Tails, Guide's Choice Hare's Ears and Poison Tungs are all picking up fish below the surface as well. Streamer fishing can be good early mornings through Moraine Park, its worth working those streamers along the cut banks. Streamers to try include Mini Dungeons, Sculpzillas and Wooly Buggers. Now is a great time to fish the park along with seeing a lot of the wildlife as they have not seen many people so far in the year.

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
