Low flows have made fish on the St. Vrain quite shy and spooky, so light tippet and a low profile are a must when fishing this little creek right now. Short leash nymphing is a good call, although this creek is small enough in many areas that you can throw a long dry dropper and just use the dry as your indicator, and you might even get a few eats up top with all the warm weather we've been having. Expect the fish to be mostly packed into deeper runs, so if you catch one fish, stay in that run and work it over thoroughly. Be sure to check the weather report before you head out- warmer days will be much more productive than cold ones, and the 11-3pm time slot is the time to fish. Be sure to call the shop at 303-447-2400 for the most up to date info on the St. Vrain, as conditions can change day to day this time of year. Last but certainly not least, a tidbit for those of you nice enough to read this far: check out the Meadow Park stretch in Lyons for a shot at some much larger than average fish that have recently been stocked into this area of the river.

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
