Gunnison: Heading into winter fishing continues to be good on the Gunnison. Focus your efforts on deeper runs as fish begin to move into their winter holes. Nymphing will be the most effective way to catch fish, but don't completely rule out streamers. Eggs, worms, stoneflies, BWOs, and midges will be your best bet. For streamers were big fans of the Sparkle Minnow, Sculpzilla, Drunk & Disorderly, and the Rusty Trombone. There can even be some sporadic dry fly fishing this time of year, so make sure and bring plenty your favorite BWO imitations.

Taylor: Stable flows hovering around 84cf. This is a great time to be fishing the Taylor, especially sight nymphing for some of the larger fish up top. Eggs, mysis shrimp, midges, and BWOs will be the ticket - but don't be afraid to mix it up! Leeches, scuds, worms, and streamers can still get it done. Expect fish to be holding in deep winter lies now that nighttime temperatures are starting to drop. Stealth is key here; long leaders, light indicators, and small flies will help you find success. Remember to leave fish on redds alone, as the Browns tend to spawn late into the season here.

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.
