Flows on the Colorado have dropped, and good reports have been flooding into the shop here in Boulder! As we continue through late summer and into Fall it's especially effective to walk the banks with a golden tungstone or girdle bug to pull some nicer browns. There are plenty of willows upstream of pump house so roll casting these bank sections or walking up far enough to the have a back cast are all great options. Streamer fishing can be productive in the deeper runs with a gonga, dungeon, or goldie if you stick with it- especially on a cloudy day!. The most important fly through this section of river is the girdle bug so get creative and fish them on a short leash nymph rig and deep with plenty of split shot to produce more numbers throughout the day- adjust your trailer, but keep that Girdle as the lead fly. Other good nymphs include the Golden tungstone, frenchie, cdc p-tails, split foam pmd, micro may. For dries: Chubby Chernobyl, fat albert, elk hair caddis, stimi chew toy, Yellow PMX, extended body PMD #16, Para adams #14-16.

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.
