River Statistics:
While the upper river tends to lock up with ice pretty heavy during the winter, the lower stretches of the Fork fish year round and can provide for some great days on the water. Midges are the mainstay hatch, and should be your focus both on the surface and below. Nymphing a variety of small flies will be your best bet- a Stonefly/ Midge combo tends to be my Winter go-to. Top flies include the Jujubee, Disco Midge, Cardinal Midge, Bling Midge, and Black Beauty Midge. San Juan worms can also pick up an extra eat or two through the day. 6x fluorocarbon tippet should do the trick for tippet, and a longer leader can really help your stealth on this river in particular. If you're not catching fish, size down your flies, add weight, or find a deeper run!

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.
