Springtime in the Rockies. Never quite know what you're going to get. Warm days and cool nights means a couple of things.... 1) I need to start doing more lawn work 2) Baetis 3) More water 4)Great fishing. Besides me getting behind on my housework I love spring! Cheesmen Canyon really starts to come alive in the spring. Fish start coming to the fly, meaning, instead of throwing microscopic flies loaded with splitshot and bumping picky fish on their noses, we are throwing not so microscopic flies with less weight (if any) to moderately picky fish! In the canyon, nymphing is your money bet for numbers. Top flies have been; san juans, flossy worms, annelids, eggs, leeches, girdle bug #8-14, foamback rs2 #16-20, sparklewing rs2 #18-22, black beauty #18-22, black beauty emergers #18-22, midge larva #18-24, Pat Dorsey's top secret...shhh #18-24. More crowds and similar flies at Deckers, unless you go during the week and even then its hit or miss. The DS up in South Park is still producing 10lb fish. Remember watch your step please and respect fellow anglers. If you're nice they will be too! Evenings have been better than mornings for me, then again mornings have been better for others than evenings. Think big and dumb: leeches, eggs, worms, foamback rs2 #16-20, and chronomidge #16-20. Have fun and drive safe!

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
