Flows on the Big Thompson have gone way up over the past couple days giving anglers the opportunity to fish bigger bugs and tippet. The Thompson has stayed a consistent performer while some others rivers in the area are starting to become tough. There has been success on both the tailwater and canyon however the tailwater fish are seemingly adjusting to the flows a little better. The best days have come when fishing dry droppers rigs with Chubby Chernobyl, PMX's, Amy's Ant, and other hopper imitations as the top fly and dropping a Girdle Bug, Squirmy Worm, Ray Charles, Pheasant Tails, Rainbow Warriors or some caddis imitations on the bottom. Don't be afraid to also try some flashier bugs and smaller streamers as the water is likely a little off color.

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
