SBC has dropped down to the 30 CFS range for now, which means more finesse will be needed to get into fish as opposed to when it was pushing at 110 last week etc. This flow can be fun with dry fly rigs. Try small parachute adams, midges, small dark stones, BWOs. If you're nymphing, dial it back to light rigs with palsa indicators and smaller nymphs. Flows in here are bound to jump back up again at some point, but look for a nice cloudy day as a good opportunity to fish Walker Ranch while it's still on the skinnier side. A longer leader with some dry flies in the afternoon could get you into some great fishing. Things are warm enough now that you could probably do well with some small caddis dries, too, like a black or brown elk hair caddis in #16-18.

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
