The Poudre is prime time right now. Flows have come down and the bugs are out. Larger stoneflies on both top and bottom are the way to get it done right now. A great setup is a large yellow stonefly imitation such as a Stimulator or Chubby and larger stones on the bottom as well; try some Kaufmann's Stones, Princes, Copper Johns (try a yellow CJ) and even some Tungstones on the bottom and keep those offerings in the shallows and on the banks as the Stones are crawling out right now. PMD's and Midges are in play and quite frankly, the fish just haven't been too picky. Guides Choice: PMX with a Girdle Bug or FB Prince. The PMX mimics both the Sallies in smaller sizes as well as the Golden Stones in larger sizes so it can be a very versatile fly. Try yellow (standard) as that hair wing is pretty Caddis like and the Yellow is the color of choice for bugs right now.

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
