The flows have been holding steady for some time now at about 85cfs, and both fish and angler alike could not be more happy about it! The menu as of late has included San Juans, Midges, Stones, small leeches, and any small general attractors such as a Rainbow Warrior or Prince Nymph. Small stones are always a good point fly, or the ever popular San Juan as well. Eggs are also starting to find a place in the feedbag, with the bows starting to act more territorial and enter pre-spawn mode. Behind that, throw Midges (at this point in the reports I feel like I'm really repeating myself, midges, midges, midges, MIDGES), of any and all variety. No need for a Thingamabobber for your indicator- a Palsa pinch on or New Zealand style indictor will do a better job detecting subtle strikes, and won't spook fish nearly as much. If you've got the whole day to fish, we'd highly recommend hiking into the Ethel Harold trailhead; the fishing just always seems to be a little bit better down there, no matter how good it was in the Kayak Run. This can also help to alleviate any issues with crowding on SBC, as the Ethel Harold trail follows enough water for plenty of anglers (more than the parking lot could even hold) to fish. Locally, this is definitely one of our top choice streams at the moment!!

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
