As flows coming out of both Dillon and Green Mountain sit around 2000 cfs your best bet is to wear a PFD and fish the banks. Nymph fishing the slower pools with some weight will be your best chance of getting the fishes attention. The high flows allow the opportunity to fish bigger bugs such larger stones, caddis, worms, and leech imitations, and mysis as always. Don't be afraid to try and throw some streamers through big runs to try and pull out a larger fish. A white vanilla bugger or other streamers like the sparkle minnow could also lead to some hook-ups. If you do find yourself nymphing try throwing girdle bugs, Smethurst's 20 bomb, micro stone gold, squirmy worms, caddis, CDC jigged pheasant tail, poxyback drake, iron lotus, bts mysis.

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.
