Apr 14 FlyCast River Forecast

Technicality: 2/5

Clear Creek is ice free and fishing great! These eager little trout will take just about anything you throw their way. That said, they are relatively skittish and will be easily spooked by a heavy foot or shadow. We prefer the dry dropper in most cases as it allows for a clean presentation and the option for trout to feed on both surface and sub-surface flies. Try leading with a Parachute Adams followed by a brassie or copper john. If you are having trouble keeping your dry fly afloat, use an Elk Hair Caddis, Chubby Chernobyl or Amys Ant. Target the banks and slow water at the head of the pool.

Ideal Days To Fish: Monday, Thursday & Friday

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 (#16-18), Chubby Chernobyl (#10-14), Amy's Ant (#10-14), Parachute Adams (#20 - #22)

Apr 10 FlyCast River Forecast

Technicality: 2/5

After several months of much needed snow, Clear Creek is largely ice free and fishing great. Trout here are feeding on a variety of bugs and are not terribly selective when it comes to fly patterns. The dry dropper is generally a safe bet regardless of flow and time of year, but it is highly encouraged at this water level. The Chubby Chernobyl, Elk Hair Caddis, and Amys Ant make for great lead (indicator) flies. We typically dont see much surface action on the aforementioned flies, but theyve been known to entice the most eager trout and make for great indicators. We suggest trailing with a smaller (#18-20) search patterns like the Brassie, Copper John or Pheasant tail or imitative patterns like the Zebra midge or Miracle Midge. When fishing dries, go with a Parachute Adams, CDC BWO, or Sparkle Dun followed by a Griffiths Gnat.

Ideal Days To Fish: Monday, Thursday & Friday

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 (#16-18), Chubby Chernobyl (#10-14), Amy's Ant (#10-14), Parachute Adams (#20 - #22)
