River Statistics:
Flows below Gross have bumped all the way up to the 200+ CFS range for the time being. This could change at any day, but what that means is a LOT of water pumping and generally less holding water for fish to spread out. They will pod up in the slower pools and back eddies, so if you're looking to get out in Walker Ranch try flashier nymphs and worms, stones, leeches, even mysis shrimp up towards the dam release. Smaller streamers can also be a fun time in here, though you'll generally pull less numbers. Checking out the upper stretches of South Boulder Creek above Gross Res could be interesting right now. Early spring can be unpredictable on upper SBC as it surges with ice cold runoff. My first instinct would be to dry a big dry dropper rig with an obvious attractor dry and a general searching nymph pattern.

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.
