Boulder Creek Fly Fishing Report | June 5, 2012

Date: June 5, 2012
Flow: 100 CFS
Flies: #14-18 Copper John, #14-18 Guides Choice Hares Ear, #14-16 Puterbaugh Caddis, #16-18 Soft Hackle Pheasant Tail, #14-16 Baby Boy Hopper, #14-16 Elk Hair Caddis

I felt like doing something different yesterday and decided to headed up to Boulder and fish Boulder Creek.  Low water this spring means that the creeks are already in good shape.  Normally Boulder Creek would be double or triple the flow at this time, but it is totally manageable at the moment.  The water is clear and right up to the banks.  The fish are by no means picky.  They are eating both dries and nymphs.  A dry dropper set up is perfect for most of the water.  Terrestrials and caddis patterns took most of the fish up top.  Copper Johns and Pheasant Tails were great droppers and fooled the majority of the fish.  All the fish we caught were perfect little browns which where eager to eat.  Just work your way upstream and plop flies into all of the pockets and soft water!
