Colorado Weekend Fishing Outlook: End Of June

Blue_Brown Trout

The Fly Fishing outlook is getting better and better each day as the water continues to drop. Rivers, like South Boulder Creek and the South Platte are fishing well on the front range and there are reports of fish eating off the surface. Dry Dropper rigs have been picking up a few fish in the shallow riffles as well in slow seams along the banks. Although fish are sporadically eating dries, a good nympher will find more fish in deep slicks and tail outs. The water is still pushy in the high country but the clarity has come back and fish are on the feed. Caddis dry and nymphs as well as PMD’s are catching fish on rivers like the Eagle, Frying Pan and Roaring Fork. If you are looking for solid fishing around the Front Range head to the South Platte and get there early to beat the crowds. If you are heading into the Mountains you better bring a boat, you will have much better results floating than wading.
