Dec 08 FlyCast River Forecast

Technicality: 2/5

Things are starting to look a little icy in the canyon. You're probably looking at your last couple weeks of fishing Clear Creek. Ice accumulation along the banks has made for tricky fishing. Not only do you have to be careful where you step, but also where you cast. In these conditions, you're probably going to be best off with a heavy nymph rig. Target the banks to the best of your ability, but also look to fish the deeper runs. Ensure plenty of weight and cover a lot of water. When nymphing, lead with a Guides Choice Hares Ear, Pheasant Tail or Psycho Prince and trail a Mercury Midge, RS2 or red thread midge.

Ideal Days To Fish: Wednesday 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)

Nov 25 FlyCast River Forecast

Technicality: 2/5

Similar to Bear Creek, Clear Creek remains largely ice free, so get out and enjoy it while you still can. You may find some ice build-up in the canyon and along sections that dont see much sun, so look for sections that receive morning and afternoon sun exposure. Water temps are low and that has trout holding in the deep and slow sections that provide them the least resistance. Hit these soft water sections with either a dry dropper or nymph rig. In general, nymph rigs will produce better results in the morning. In the afternoon, dry dropper setups will attract trout feeding in the upper half of the water column. A Parachute Adams or Elk Hair Caddis followed by a Zebra Midge or Pheasant Tail is a solid dry dropper setup. When nymphing, lead with a Guides Choice Hares Ear, Pheasant Tail or Psycho Prince and trail a Mercury Midge, RS2 or red thread midge.

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 (#18-20), Parachute Adams (#20 - #22)
