The Blue below Dillon is becoming more fishable with the lower flows. A good summer rig in here is a light dry dropper starting with a caddis up top and dropping either a midge, mysis, or baetis below. Drowning a dry can be the ticket, so don't get disheartened when your dry gets swallowed by a push of water. Fish are starting to be a little more spread out, make sure you really look into the water through this stretch and be on the lookout for those red stripes! Nymphing is still a good option as well, and with the flows still on the higher side that will be the best way to get flies down. Give this river a shot! Your skills will be tested. The Blue below Green Mtn is also now down at a range more suitable for wade fishing. Get out there with some big dry flies while we're still in the summertime window!

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
