Flows are low and it's wintertime up on the Colorado, but we've had some great fishing lately on several sections of the Collie. Depending on weather swings, the upper waters around Parshall and Kremmling have been fishing great on small midge patterns like zebras, mercury black beauties, juju bees, poison tungs, etc., and small streamers are always on the menu with some low light. The Williams Fork tailwater section can be downright bangin' when fished with leeches, small midges and BWO, eggs, and streamers like the articulated goldie, though it gets crowded on weekend days. The stretches of the river down towards Pumphouse, Glenwood, etc. can also fish great this time of year. For my money, I'd throw a streamer down lower right now to see if I could entice a bigger brown out of the depths. That being said, nymphing will always be king for numbers on the Colorado in late fall/winter, and action on top with small midges and BWO isn't out of the question on warmer days.

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.
