Colorado Stream Update: The St. Vrain is flowing high! Use extreme caution when wade fishing and look to South Boulder Creek for better Colorado fly fishing on the front range. Now is a great time for exploring!

Current Conditions at Saint Vrain:

Flows are high right now but check out www.theflyfisher.com for premium wade fishing trips on our very own private fly fishing preserve, Williams Ranch once the water calms down.

The water is high everywhere around Colorado‚Äôs Front Range. To find good fishing try hiking to mountain streams and lakes. Many of these streams are flowing at a fishable level. The water is high but we are still catching fish. Be persistent. The fish are still there! Fishing is decent close to Boulder. Use a double indicator rig. Keep your indicators in the same line and this will help promote a good drag free drift. The water is fast and deep better bring your split shot! Make sure your nymph rig is deep enough, find the bottom of the river and fish up. Our guides say to try nymph fishing with a bright red or pink San Juan Worm (size 16). The stream is high but the water is still navigable and we are catching some nice fish. Looks like it is time for rafting!  The fishing is slow.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Slightly Off.
