The Yampa is now getting into full run off making finding fish a little tougher and causing the water to become off-color. Certain areas of the river such as the tailwater below Stagecoach aren't to high and can be productive for a day of fishing. Flows in this part are sitting around 80 cfs so still very fishable. Nymphing will likely be the most productive in this area at the moment, try to fish size 14-16 tungsten nymphs up top such as pheasant tails, frenchies, poison, two bit hooker and dropping off smaller midges or bwo imitations. As for the Yampa through Steamboat it is raging and has poor visibility. Focus on fishing deeper rigs near the banks and in softer water. Nymphing with flies such as stones, san juan/squirmy worms, caddis, bwo, and midges can produce fish but this section could prove to be tough at this time. Don't be afraid to try and throw some streamers gain some bigger fishes attention as well.

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.
