The Ark is a great option for those who are trying to get out of the Front Range area. The water is in great shape, just still keep in mind that when those temps do increase on warmer days you might want to rest some fish. Fishing early will still be your best bet, and low light conditions are when the fishing is fantastic. The fish are looking up, so throwing dries or a dry/dropper rig will turn the most fish. Do not forget about the big bug too, stripping leeches or smaller streamers will play and might even bag a pb. Hayden Meadows has been lights out considering the fish have a buffet of bugs to feed on. Now is the time to get out there and watch fish eat a fly!

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
