The Park is a great place to spend a day this time of year! The Thompson is fishing well in and above the Moraine Valley- standard dry-dropper fare has been working well, as well as a nymph rig in some of the deeper holes. Glacier Creek and Fall River are both fishing amazingly well as of late- try attractor dries, Caddis, PMD's, and Stone Flies. Up in the alpine tundra, the high mountain lakes are fishing spectacularly- fish in these lakes are generally keying in on small midges in the morning, but become increasingly receptive to larger dries and terrestrials as the water warms. Be sure to check the weather before you head up, as thunderstorms have been prevalent as of late, and especially so in the afternoons. Also, if you are going up on the weekend, get there early- the crowds (not fishing crowds, just general visitors) have been serious!

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. Have fun chasing after your next trophy trout and enjoy nature's beauty!The Rocky Mountain Anglers Crew
