Blue Below Dillon: Lower flows below Dillon have had the fishing tough at times with the water reaching some warmer temps in these dog days of late summer. For best chances at success, get on the water early, and don't be afraid to mess around with some hoppers and rigs like hopper-dropper-droppers. Amy's Ant is a local favorite if you're trying to coax one to the surface, and bugs like caddis larvae and pupae/emergers, PMDs, and as always, midges and mysis are a good bet beneath the surface. Of course, the usual go-to rig of a mysis on point trailing to a smaller midge or mayfly under the surface will always produce here.

Blue Below Green Mountain Reservoir: Flows are bumpin' down below Green Mountain at this point, and a lot of folks have been having a great time down here. With bigger water come bigger bugs and streamers. Favorite meatier patterns in the canyon include gongas, dungeons, sparkle minnows, goldies, heisenberg baby bows, and the list goes on. Nymph the big junk like girdle bugs, HDA variants, perdigones, eggs, squirmy worms, and mop flies or cranefly larvae. There have been some nice drake hatches in the canyon too. Try poxyback nymphs or Smethurst's Drake Bomb, and throw H&L Variants and other big dries to match these guys on the surface.

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.
