Great news, people: flows have finally bumped up to the 80+ range below Gross, which means happy fish and happy anglers. Walker Ranch fishes great at this flow on pretty much the whole available range of tactics, from single dries to double dries, dry droppers, lighter nymph rigs, and even small - mid-sized streamers. BWO are among the most common bugs you'll see hatching in here through the fall and even off and on in the winter on exceptionally warmer days. JuJu Baetis are a classic pattern down here, as are extended body BWOs, parachute adams, sparkle duns, sprout midges, and small elk hair caddis (at least in October/early Nov.), as far as dries go. That being said, sometimes hiking way in here in the fall/winter is a lot of fun because you can get onto some pretty well-rested fish who might come up to something ridiculous and out-of-season like a Chubby Chernobyl. Below the surface, along with baetis patterns like the JuJu or a classic pheasant tail, midges such as the Zebra Midge, Mercury Black Beauty, Disco Midge, Don King, etc. are always good. Small, dark streamers such as leeches or thin mints can also always get some attention in here, especially on low-light days.

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
