Aug 09 FlyCast River Forecast

Difficulty: Beginner/Intermediate

Flows at Clear Creek continue to drop, but the fishing is great. This time or year really begins to pick up as far as productivity goes. Trout are feeding actively throughout the day and are not terribly selective when it comes to your flies. We've found that trout are holding along the banks and in the faster, yet shallow, riffles and runs. Clear Creek is notorious for holding trout in inconspicuous places so don't pass up any water. Cover all fronts before you move on as you'll be surprised with what you find. The dry dropper continues to produce the best results. Lead with an Amy's Ant, Chubby Chernobyl or Elk Hair Caddis followed by one or more smaller searcher/attractor patterns like a Copper John, Flashback PT or Brassie. Hatch activity has been great so come prepared to fish a single or double dry fly rig. Caddis, midges, BWOs and yellow sallies are all making an appearance.

Ideal Days To Fish: Monday, Friday & Sunday

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), Black Beauty (#18-22), RS2 (#18-22), San Juan Worm (#10-14).

Surface: Parachute Adams (#20 - #22), Griffiths Gnat (#24 - 26), Elk Hair Caddis (#18-20), Amy's Ant (#10), Chubby Chernobyl (#10-12), Hippie Stomper (#12-14)
