Flows are on their way up in the Roaring Fork. Nymphing and streamer fishing is your best bet. Good colors for streamer fishing have been olive, black and white. Try to animate your fly like a stunned baitfish or a sculpin moving from hiding place to hiding place. A sink tip or sining leader will do you well. Streamers have been known to out fish a nymph and dry fly fisherman this time of year. Girdle bugs and BWO nymphs will do great for you. I like Rs2's #18-22, Barr's Emergers BWO #18-22, Juju Baetis #18-22 all dropped off. Pods of fish can be found rising to midges and BWO's. A well presented dry fly drift will entice a fish enough to rise. Remember to cover water and find the fish. Angling pressure is still down as the season hasn't quite hit and fishing can be off the charts good. This time of year flows can be dynamic so call the shop for the most up to date river reports.

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.
