Flows seem to have come down for good on the Big T tailwater, and we have been experiencing some of the best fishing of the year as of late! There are a plethora of bugs hatching right now, including Stoneflies, Caddis, PMDs, BWO's, Drakes, and plenty of terrestrials! Fishing a dry dropper has been quite effective- we particularly like running a dry with two droppers for a little added depth and to try a variety of different bugs to see what the fish are keying in on. With the lower water, 5x has been fishing better than 4x, especially right below the dam in the areas receiving the most pressure. With the more suitable flows, fish have really spread out, so don't be afraid to cover plenty of water and fish all the pockets and small pieces of holding water you see! Weekends have been variable in terms of crowds, but nothing unmanageable, and weekdays have been downright empty. This is a FANTASTIC time of year to go fish the T, get it while it's hot!

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
