Many of us shop folk have been heading out to the Colorado at Parshall or toward pump house for the browns that start to get spawny and aggressive this time of year. We have been having a blast throwing streamers including mini dungeons, Sculpzillas, and Goldies. If your trying to target some of the bigger browns in this system try a sinking leader or better yet a sinking tip or sinking line to get your streamer in front of these predatory fish more often. Nymphing with plenty of split shot 4 feet or deeper is very productive with great nymphs being purple or red d-midge, cdc pheasant tails, jigged frenchies or spanish bullets, black and gray rs2's, top secrets, and yellow eggs. The colder night temps have some of these fish lethargic in the morning and holding in the deeper pools so the nymph rig deep can put you into fish a little faster in the morning!

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
