Went out and spent a few hours on Clear Creek yesterday 4/29/12.
Here is the report...
Some good looking water up there.
We fished a couple of different pullouts between tunnel 2 and tunnel 4. There were a good number of other anglers out and about, but more than enough water to find some solitude and a bunch of fish. Upon our arrival around noon, we witnessed a great caddis hatch. The fish were not up on the dries, but there we caddis out everywhere. It got the fish on the feed.
Average Clear Creek Brownie. A 3wt might just be the perfect rod for the canyon.
I fished a dry dropper dropper rig with a Baby Boy hopper up top followed by two caddis pupa. The rig was deadly. I got a few fish that smashed the dry, but for the most part they really wanted the caddis nymphs. The video should show you why. That day in the canyon I got the mini slam. Brown, Bow, and Brookie! I was really happy with the brookie, I have never gotten one before in the canyon.
The clarity of the water was good, it had a slight green tint to it. I personally think that is perfect! Overall the fishing was terriffic. I would encourage everyone to get out somewhere this weekend. Clear Creek would be a great option.
