Water is now ripping and very high from the peak to peak down through Lyons. With that being said fishing the flat sections in town focusing on slow soft water will still pull fish with a heavier weighted nymph rig or longer hopper dropper rig. My two favorite rigs include a size 10 girdle to a brightly colored squirmy or mop fly. One of my favorite canyon rigs over the course of the summer is a #14 hippie stomper or chubby chernobyl to a poison tung, rainbow warrior, girdle bug, or caddis emerger. When fishing the canyon, a well placed cast in the soft water around the larger boulders can produce some big top water action with the larger browns crushing your dry fly.

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
