Great reports coming in from our guides fishing the Blue in the early a.m. window. At the lower flows the two to three fly rigs with sparse profile midges size #20-24 are the key. Red, black, purple, gray bling midges, disco, rs2, top secret, uv midges always catch the bows in here. In the morning the egg as your top fly dropping to a small red midge should be the rig but throwing the vanilla bugger will get these fish turning to eat. If your not getting into fish an extra piece of split shot and a little more length to the nymph rig should get the rig dialed in a bit more. As a whole the number of fish in this stretch are slightly lower so walking the banks and sight fishing is my game plan here to catch a few more fish. Walking downstream and fishing the town stretch in the afternoon where the fishing pressure drops a bit can be a great way to put a few more in the net.

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
