The Big T is back up to a more ideal 27 ish CFS, what we typically expect in December and January. Midges and small mayflies have been producing both on top and underneath, and small stones and worms are definitely still a good menu item. Sometimes a #12-16 mini leech in a black or a wine color can do some major damage as a point fly on a nymph setup or twitched around like a small streamer at the tailwater meadow, even at lower flows like what we're dealing with right now. Go-to bugs right now are small parachute adams in BWO, black, and standard flavors in #16-20, and griffith's gnats or sprout midges, top secret midges, in #18-22. We're definitely seeing the 6x tippet and smaller bugs type of conditions. Sometimes a #24-26 blood midge is a killer at the tailwater in the wintertime. The canyon, aside from just the upper mile or two, can be a little tough during the winter. If you head down into the canyon, look for the water that's moving and receiving the most sun.

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.
