RMNP Fly fishing report

For more details and up-to-the minute flow conditions and reports, check out, Kirk's Fly Shop, Estes Angler, or any one of the many local fly shops on the Front Range.

Fishing has been good. The fish here in RMNP aren't as big as they are in Idaho, but we sure are catching the snot out of 'em, and nothing really beats getting trout to eat big dry flies. The recent rain means the rivers (creeks, more like) are high and fish are on the banks and looking up. Big stoneflies and hoppers have been the move, but beetles, flying ants, and flashy droppers have seen their fair share of action. When the fish just won't come up, big streamers have got the job done.

Put the bobbers away, it's dry-fly season, boys.
