It's a great time of the year to get up to the Mile/Reef for some fall/early winter fishing with lots of nice browns and rainbows to be had with the big nymph and streamer rig. If the Wyoming weather gets a little too "Western" out there and you find it hard getting out to the Mile, Fremont Canyon is always an excellent option where the fishing can sometimes require a little more finesse but be equally satisfying. Good offerings for our guides on the nymph rig this year have included black, brown, and purple leeches, girdle bugs and other golden stone patterns, orange and olive scuds in #12-16, foam back emergers in #18-20, worms, yellow and orange eggs, and the list goes on. If you're in a mood to commit some time to swinging streamers, try sparkle minnows, articulated goldies, gongas, peanut envy, and swing-style patterns like Platte River Spiders and Montana Intruders can often draw some exciting takes from the bigger browns in here. Similar stuff will work at the Reef as at the Mile, generally -- and never forget about the classic rock worm/annelid if you find yourself 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. 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
