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.
