Colorado Stream Update:

Current Conditions at Boulder Creek:

Hopper dropper is still catching fish on Boulder Creek. Smaller beadhead caddis and BWO nymphs are taking fish under the surface. Hoppers, Ants and Stimulators are also getting aggressive strikes on the surface. If the hopper dropper bite slows down try moving small leech patterns through the creek. This can produce some great fish.   The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 52-55 degrees and Crystal Clear.
