The roaring fork is rising as runoff is hitting that area and causing the rivers to rise and become off color. The fork is flowing over 2000 through basalt with around 1 foot of visibility. A good day fishing can still be found on the fork but conditions can vary day to day as our historic snowpack will continue to have an effect on the river system for the first part of summer. There should however be some good caddis hatches that could get some fish looking up as well as some solid bwo hatches that could increase fish activity. That said, nymphing will still be the most productive method of fishing. With the high water bigger flies and bigger tippet will be a smart move. Look to throw some stoneflies, caddis, and other larger/brighter flies to cut through the stained water.

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
