Colorado Stream Update: Clear Creek is beautiful whether it's summer or winter.

Current Conditions at Clear Creek:

Clear Creek from Idaho Springs through Golden is mostly frozen over right now so your best bet is to find one of Colorado's famed tailwaters to get into some action. Best advice for great fly fishing right now is Deckers, Cheesman Canyon, and the Blue River in Silverthorne.

Spring is around the corner and it looks like it is going to be another superb Colorado fly fishing season.  The fishing is awful.  Clear skies and 28-31 degree weather. The water temperature was between 32-35 degrees and Crystal Clear.
