If I were you and you were me and I had a day off I'd be at the Pan. Flows are on their way down and we know what that means, Feed Bag On! Baetis is the main course with a side of PMD's, caddis and mysis. The closer you are to the dam, the smaller the bugs should be and the more mysis is in play. Additionally sizing down your tippet on these ever wary fish is a must. Look for some bigger fish to be in the flats that may have gotten pushed out during the higher flows. ***A word to the wise: Please watch your step on the flats as this is basically one big red.*** This time of year browns can be spotted gettin' it on in the flats. Fishing to spawning fish is frowned upon. With that being said, eggs can be a deadly option on your rig. Streamers also have their place to fish on the pan. Low light scenarios typically yield better results than a bright day: mornings, evenings and overcast days. For the dry fly aficionado; pods of rising fish can be found all over the river midday. Downstream drifts and 6-7x tippet are considered the norm. Smaller flies #18-24 will get the job done. Para extended body BWO, sparkle dun, klinkhammer BWO, BDE BWO all in the smaller sizes. A double dry rig gives you a better opportunity but it is harder to get a solid drift on both. Fishing below the dam focus on your weight, just off the bottom is a great spot, that means every 3-4th cast you should be dinkin' bottom. Making sure your rig is clean is key, lots of moss up there. At the toilet bowl, mysis, midge, BWO, and eggs are all a great idea for your rig. Hint: try fishing drake nymphs in the riffles, yes they will still eat a drake!

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.
