Colorado Stream Update: "What a perfect day to be on the river in February!"

Current Conditions at Clear Creek:

It was an absolutely wonderful day on the river. The fish were feeding and taking advantage of the warm weather, as were we, moving around and feeding heavily on midges. The lower sections of the canyon look daunting and completely frozen over, however as you make your way up the canyon, many of the sun exposed sections are completely ice free. A light tandem nymph rig did the trick and we were hitting fish in almost every section that looked fishy. We did not get into anything of real size, however we hooked and landed a number of fish and came away with a whole new set of fly fishing skills. There was a bit of construction going on, as it looked like the county was building an entire paved trail system running the length of the canyon. Pat and Mike are coming back in the spring and look forward to taking advantage of this new trail system and getting on the water on another beautiful day.

The fishing is great.  Clear skies and 56-59 degree weather. The water temperature was between 32-35 degrees and Slightly Off.
