Current Conditions at Clear Creek:

Clear creek has started to lock up with ice. A lot of sections have open water but are interrupted shelf ice every so often, this makes fishing difficult. Some fish have still been found in deep holding areas with indicator rigs. Small midges and baetis patterns are ideal. It has been a great season on Clear Creek. For those still pursing a pull, head to one of our great tailwaters!

The fishing is slow.  Clear skies and 36-39 degree weather. The water temperature was between 32-35 degrees and Crystal Clear.
