Ark near Salida: Flows are becoming more manageable, fishing from the boat is going to be the best way to cover water and maximize your shots. Fish have been able to move a little more given visibility is getting better. Most of your success will be throwing bank shots and seeing who wants to play. Try a large terrestrial on the surface, and drop a caddis pupa! Double dry is also a good rig to get it close to the edge.

Ark near Leadville: Flows are pretty prefect in this basin. The higher up you are the more wadeable this river is, and as you venture downstream it picks up a little bit. Fish are holding close to the bank for an easy meal, as well as holding in the slow tanky water where meals are abundant and easy to find. Don't forget to cast at any pocket as well, always a good bet for holding a fish or two. Golden stones, Caddis, yellow sallies, and gray drakes are hatching hard, so bring your big bugs and slap em down hard. This is the time to be fishing here!!

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.
