The tailwater below Stagecoach is absolutely pumping water, flowing at 200 cfs! For this portion of the river it is very high, and therefore will be approached much differently than the previous week in which is was in the 60 cfs range. Fish will be just about everywhere, so don't forget to keep those rigs wet! Considering the water levels grubs such as earthworms become a great offering, also to keep in mind the streamer bite can be surprisingly good. Sparkle Minnow is the only streamer you need for this river. Venturing downstream more towards Steamboat Springs, the river increases in flow as it picks up with various smaller feeder creeks. Town is flowing over 600 cfs, therefore the banks will produce with indicator rigs dredging stoneflies, mayflies, baetis patterns, worms, etc. The Yampa generally sees their high water season a little earlier than most of the state, this could be the start of a fun high water season!

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.
