Fall is here and the Colorado is still a great option. Flows are down, the water is clear, and the crowds have thinned. Overnight lows have got some of the fish feeling in that type of a way, so egg patterns could produce. Do your best to not walk on gravel beds or drag your boat across them.

During those cold mornings perhaps try nymphing first with flies like Biot Epoxy Gold Stone, PT�??s in #16-#20, baetis, two bits, zebra midges, eggs and worms. When the air starts to warm up and the bugs begin to pop, think about fishing some dries. Fish an attractor dry like a Hippie Stomper or a Stimi, followed by a BWO or caddis, depending on what you�??re seeing during that part of the day.

For you streamer junkies, keep doin�?? your thing. Flies like the Gonga, Dungeon, Mini-Dungeon, and Peanut Envy all moved fish.

The leaves are turning and river rafting trips are all but done. Get out there and enjoy it while you can!

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
