Overall flows are on the come-down below Dillon Res, but with plenty of water still pushing through here you'll be able to throw some worms and caddis patterns around. Sometimes a soft hackle caddis pupa or emerger pattern can really do some damage here as we head into summertime. These fish will also be gorging on plenty of mysis shrimp, as usual -- some great patterns are the BTS, Mayer's, and Charlie's Mysis in #18-20. Favorite springtime dropper flies on a tandem nymph rig in here include various Blood Midge Larvae, Black Zebra Midges, Disco Midges, Top Secrets, JuJubees and JuJu Baetis, WD40s, and the list goes on, all in #28-22. Dry fly opportunities are few but an overcast day can bring these wary behemoths to the surface. BWO's and midges will be what they are feasting on. Midges will start earlier in the day ~10:30 with BWO's starting ~12 and tapering off around 4. Try a high floating BWO dun with a cripple or emerger dropped off the back (loopwing emerger, tak's emerger, crippled baetsi #18-22). The Extended Body BWO in #18-22 is also a great anatomically-correct pattern to show these educated tailwater fish if they're looking up. Flows below Green Mountain are quite skinny right now currently sitting at around 70 CFS. This definitely means easy wading, but can also lead to challenging fishing.

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
