Quote(s) of the Day: It is so pretty with the snow on the mountains!
Fly fishing is so fun! I’m so glad I’m out here!
Notes:
What an awesome day on the water with Garret and G. Both are in town for vacation and wanted to try there hand at some fly fishing! Garrett and G are pretty new to the sport, and wanted to work through some of the basics today when it came to rigging or fly selection. Clear creek has been on a rough weather streak with the recent snow and storms that have covered the metro area as of recently. The fish are still here though, and willing to eat! We gave the fish everything in a size 18 or smaller today. It proved to be the ticket with each angler putting at least 1 fish in the net on a small midge or baetis imitation. We decided to focus on deeper runs or pools looking for fish that have began to stack up in the soft edges or way down deep in prep for the winter freeze. If your looking to get out on one of the more scenic and rewarding times of the year hurry up it won't last long!
It was a snowy but productive day on the river and following the sun was the tactic. We found warmer water where the fish were active and feeding. Katy approached a promising looking pocket, and made a great cast right into the fishy zone. Like clockwork, the fish ate her dropper and she set the hook perfectly. After a good fight, she coerced the fish into the net perfectly. It was the nicest one of the day; a beautiful, wild 12” brown trout!

Clear skies and 48-51 degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Crystal Clear. The fly fishing has been great, good hatches of Blue Winged Olives and midges will excite and challenge all levels of anglers.   The creek has been on fire! For a nice change of pace try stripping micro black streamers. The best results have been with small black wooly buggers and Belly Ache Minnows.   The creek has been producing some better than average this fall! Nymph rigs and streamer rigs have been producing big fish in the creek’s deepest slots.   The fishing is fair.
