The fishing through the town of Silverthorne has been good these the last couple of weeks, as they haven't bumped the flows super high quite yet. The fish in Silverthorne see plenty of flies and have become pretty finicky- however, an inconspicuous indicator, light tippet, small flies, and appropriate weight will do the trick most of the time. If you find a few extra flies in these heavily pressured fish, be kind and don't leave any behind. A few anglers up there can be a bit on edge, so be respectful of fishing space on this often crowded section of river. Weekends have been a downright zoo. Fishing lower down towards the high school has been very productive, as that stretch tends to have far less people and plenty of nice fish. AM's have been very productive with mysis and a variety of midges and BWO's. As the sun rises and the day warms up, expect the fish to become more active and move up in the water column. Fishing down lower on the river way is a great place to escape the crowds! Below Green Mountain Res is still at a wadable level ~300cfs. Caddis, BWO's, and Stones as well as a worm have been top producers; 4x and 5x tippet is fine, but get those flies down! Streamers have been effective as well below Green Mountain as well- usually, a bright fly for a bright day or a dark fly on a cloudier day is the go-to thought process throwing streamers down 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.
