Colorado Stream Update:

Current Conditions at Clear Creek:

Clear Creek is still moving quite rapidly and there are quite a few rafters to contend with. Caddis are hatching sporadically and if you focus on the soft pockets fish you have a good chance of hooking fish. Dry dropper is a solid set up to work slow water if you can find it.   The fishing is fair.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 56-59 degrees and Crystal Clear.
