Directions:  To reach the South Boulder Creek tail water at Walker Ranch, drive up Baseline or 9th street towards Chautauqua where Flagstaff road starts. The road is steep and winding for the next several miles with wicked switchbacks and bike traffic. After about 7 miles on Flagstaff road you will see the lot for Walker Ranch on your left. The river is about a 20 minute hike down a moderate trail. To access South Boulder Creek at El Dorado Canyon, drive south out of town on Broadway until you reach the stoplight where El Dorado Springs Drive is on the right. Follow this road for about 2 miles, go through the small town of El Dorado, notice the swimming pool to the right. The Park requires a State Park pass that is $7 daily, and there is about 3/4 mile of access to the creek.

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
