Colorado Stream Update: Clear Creek is close to frozen and un-fishable

Current Conditions at Clear Creek:

Clear Creek from Lawson all the way down to Golden has too much ice buildup for any type of productive fly fishing. We recommend finding a tail water instead.

 Clear skies and 28-31 degree weather. The water temperature was between 32-35 degrees and Crystal Clear.
