Flows have gone down on all three tailwater sections on the North Platte. Snowpack is above normal so don't get used to it. With that being said clarity has been great. BWO's nymphs: Rs2's, Tungsten Splitfoam BOW, Barrs Emerger, Juju Baetis and P-tails #16-22 all work well. Red San Juans, annelids, scuds, eggs, leeches all doing their part. If you fish the mile a stonefly nymph on point will do you well. Clarity has been good in through Fremont Canyon so sight fishing has been off the charts. Fish have been seen rising to BWO's on cloudy, overcast days. If you can find yourself in a situation where there is no wind, throwing a #20 para adams to a 20" gets your heart pounding. Streamers have been good on nasty days as well. As we move closer and closer towards runoff look for these tailwaters to start jacking up. 3-5X is appropriate with plenty of split shot.

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
