Although we're pretty much past the real peak of the salmon fly hatch on the Colorado, the river has been fishing well basically all the way up and down. Flows will be clearest up towards Kremmling, Parshall, and the Williams Fork. You can never go wrong running a girdle bug/Pat's rubber legs as a point fly when nymphing on the Collie. Drop to bugs like Iron Sallies or other golden stone imitations like the tung stone, as well as caddis like the graphic caddis, tung swing caddis, joca's, and the list goes on. The prince nymph and its endless variations can always do some damage in the Collie. As we get towards July, hoppers will be more and more of a presence, especially on warmer days. Streamers like dungeons, sculpzillas, mini gongas, boogeymen, sparkle minnows, etc., are always in play. Throw bright, obvious patterns on warm days if the water is showing some stain and you're itching for the tug, and go dark and subtle on the profile on cool, lower light days when the water looks clearer. Always consider checking out the Williams Fork tailwater to switch things up a bit. As of now, it's at a very ideal flow of about 200 CFS. Generally, somewhat smaller bugs in the baetis category trailed behind an egg, smaller stone, or leech are the bread and butter here.

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.
