Flows below Chessman Res are just about even with the historical average, that being said this river is in pretty great shape. We are seeing a good amount of mayflies showing up around the afternoons, and fishing before and after the afternoon storms has been lights out. With the water a little high, another way to link into fish is with the good ole nymph rig, fishing stones and worms trailing top secrets, micro mays, etc. There are still a decent amount of terrestrials jumping around, therefore having a rod with some foam tied on can entice some exciting strikes.

The Dream is fishing pretty well, but water temperatures are something to keep in mind especially in the afternoons and the further downstream you venture. Get out there early, catch a couple fish when the conditions are prime, and then if it does warm up crack a cold one.

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
