Colorado Stream Update: Lock-up is near

Current Conditions at Clear Creek:

Clear Creek has seen a lot of ice lately. Through Golden and the first bit of the canyon, the river was locked up entirely during the last round of cold weather. Although the creek has opened up slightly, it seems as if winter is here to stay. It has been a great season on Clear Creek. For those still pursing a pull, head to one of our great tailwaters!

It’s now winter time in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. Time to head to the tail waters. What a fantastic season it was. Fly fishing trips and reports have been great this year. Winter is just about to arrive.   Clear skies and 48-51 degree weather. The water temperature was between 32-35 degrees and Crystal Clear.
