The Crying Pan remains flowing around 90 cfs. Being a tailwater it will always be an option for the traveling angler, with relatively consistent water temperatures and being a year round source of food. The BWO action has been pretty good, with the hatches more or less being focused on the afternoons and warmer portions of the day. The best way to approach this river is to start the day with a nymph rig, dropping mysis and small midges and baetis imitations. We have found that nymphing without an indicator or the use of more delicate indicators such as the New Zealand Indicator System has been crucial in fooling these finicky fish that see constant pressure. If you aren't finding as much success as wished, drive down into the canyon more opposite direction of the dam and you will find more fish that are willing to eat. It is always a good idea to toss the streamer around for a while as well, giving the fish something to look at that may entice them to leave their lies. Don't forget you are close to the Fork in which has been producing lots of action!

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.

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.
