Oct 13 FlyCast River Forecast

Technicality: 2/5

Flows on Clear Creek have held steady since the start of the month, but remain slightly below historical averages for this time of year. Trout here are not terribly selective, but the fishing can be hit or miss. Feeding continues to take place predominantly along the banks and behind large obstructions. A light nymph rig or dry dropper will do just fine. Cloud cover this week will work in your favor, but air pressure will be fairly volatile. When fishing a dry dropper go with something more imitative like an Elk Hair Caddis or Parachute Adams followed by one or more smaller imitative midge or baetis nymphs. Weve gotten reports of fish on smaller streamers so if you are feeling like mixing it up strip a Wooly Bugger or smaller minnow through the deeper runs and pools. Regardless of how you fish, you are going to want to cover a lot of water and not spend a whole lot of time picking apart each hole.

Ideal Days To Fish: Wednesday, 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), San Juan Worm (#10-14).

Surface: Elk Hair Caddis (#16-18), Chubby Chernobyl (#10-12), Amy's Ant (#10-14), Parachute Adams (#20 - #22)

Oct 07 FlyCast River Forecast

Technicality: 2/5

Flows at Clear Creek continue to come down and trout are becoming increasingly selective. That said, these trout are comparatively less picky so dont worry too much. You can get away with a searcher pattern just about any time of the year, but you are going to want to focus on smaller imitative patterns with cooler temps and fewer food sources. The dry dropper will produce the best results, but dont expect a whole lot of surface action this week. Trout will congregate along the banks and outer seams and feed predominantly below the surface of the water. Cover a lot of water this week and dont get hung up on one set of flies. Lead with an Elk Hair Caddis followed by one or more midge or baetis patterns like a Zebra Midge, Mercury Midge, RS2, or Jujubaetis.

Ideal Days To Fish: Tuesday, Saturday & 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), San Juan Worm (#10-14).

Surface: Elk Hair Caddis (#16-18), Chubby Chernobyl (#10-12), Amy's Ant (#10-14), Parachute Adams (#20 - #22)

Sep 29 FlyCast River Forecast

Technicality: 2/5

Fishing on Clear Creek is forecast to be consistent with previous weeks. Flows have held steady compared to last week and the trout are feeding consistently throughout the day. We havent had any lights out days as of late, but we are bringing trout to the net in a consistent fashion. Trout will continue to hold along the banks and behind large obstructions. The dry dropper is our go-to set up as it covers all fronts. We like to start by leading with a smaller Hippie Stomper or Amys Ant, but if you are not seeing results go with something more imitative like an Elk Hair Caddis. Trail any of the aforementioned flies with one or more searcher/imitative nymphs like a Frenchie, Copper John, Pheasant Tail, Zebra Midge, or even a Rainbow Warrior. This week is forecast to start off at a fairly productive rate and worsen starting on Thursday with a sudden drop in air pressure. Fishing deep with neutral colored and imitative flies will be the key to success.

Ideal Days To Fish: Wednesday, Thursday & 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 (#16-18), Chubby Chernobyl (#10-12), Amy's Ant (#10-14), Parachute Adams (#20 - #22)
