May 17 FlyCast River Forecast

Difficulty: Beginner/Intermediate

While flows on Clear Creek have stabilized to some extent, conditions are tough. At this flow, the water is off-colored and productivity has suffered. If you decide to give it a shot, focus on the slower sections near the bank and pocket water. In this case, dry droppers will still be effective, but youre probably better off going with a nymph rig and big/flashy bugs. Mild weather this week will only make matters worse. So if youre looking to get one last Clear Creek session in before run-off fully sets in, now is the time.

Ideal Days To Fish: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday through Saturday

Suggested Flies:

Sub-surface: Prince Nymph (#16-20), Pheasant Tail (#16-20), Copper John (#16-20), Rainbow Warrior (#18-20), Zebra Midge (black/red #18-22), San Juan Worm (#10-14).

Surface: Elk Hair Caddis (#18-20), Parachute Adams (#20 - #22)
