BWO's in full affect on the upper Gunny, Black Canyon, Gorge, and Pleasure Park areas. Stoneflies are starting to move around and the girdle bug eats have been electrifying! Yellow sally nymphs are doing their fair share of damage as well. Caddis are poppin' off mornings and evenings. Fish are keying in on bigger bugs for the first time this year and it seems as though they are hungrier than ever! Nymphing has been the best way to consistently net fish but pods of rising fish can be found all over the river. Back eddies, foam lines, rock walls, slicks 2-3' deep and riffles all have dry fly hungry fish in them. Hoppers got a few looks, caddis did its fair share but the real winners were BWO dries and cripples with cripples out fishing the dun's 2:1. The streamer fishing has been lights out as well. Brown trout colored streamers was able to fool its fair share of fish! Sparkle minnnows, mini dungeons, intruders, and buggers. Girdle bug, caddis, p-tail was the rig all day the only change was to take the split shot off mid day. Fish moved up in the column as the day warmed up. Streamer fishing was best early and late in the day. Faster moving water produced bigger bows and the slower tankier stuff held its fair share of browns. Leeches are also a great point fly option this time of year as well. Get up there while the gettin is good!!

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.
