The flows at Clear Creek area on their way up but nothing out of control as of right now. The further up you go the better the clarity and lower the cfs. Thought the town of Golden, CC is running high and off color. Streamers can be fun through the kayak run or a deep nymph rig with golden stones, caddis, bow's and worms. As you work your way up the canyon, similar rigs that worked through town will work up there. Throw in a hopper dropper in your mix and you will stay busy all day. As the day warms up fish will be keying in on certain bugs, specifically BWO and stones. If their gaze shifts up hoppers and BWO's can be downright silly. Get up there before runoff hits as Clear Creek can be sever. With that being said call the shop for the most up to date flows. 303-447-2400

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
