The Blue below Dillon is sitting around the 77 cfs mark. Winter tactics on this stretch of river will be your friend, light tippets, longer leaders, and stealthy approaches put fish in the bag. Mysis shrimp patterns trailed by your assortment of midges will feed fish. Water clarity is great, sight fishing to feeding fish is always a fun way to spend a couple hours. Stop in the shop for any questions or hot flies. Some favorites that tend to always get some interest below the Mysis are disco midges, top secret midges, mercury black beauties, biot midges, miracle midges... the list goes on. Fishing downstream of Silverthorne towards Kremmling can also be great this time of year. Do not expect to be very warm fishing down in there, but tight lines help with that. The Blue Below Green Mountain Res can also be a good time, even in the dead of winter, but beware of hiking down into this tailwater solo. When there is a good bit of snow and ice, even the most sure-footed of us have taken some spills scrambling around on the rocks down there. Give us a call for updated flows and reports, it is the time of year we are out there quite a bit!

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
