Fishing Around Boulder In A Nutshell

Boulder Creek See Full Report

As of 1/28 the recent warmer weather had opened things up a bit. The deep holes in Eben G. Fine are currently open and fishable. Above that things ice up quickly. Anywhere deep and free of ice will hold fish and if you can get your nymphs deep enough (you may need multiple BB split shot in some of the deepest) you will find fish on the feed. With the low, clear water in town, consider dropping your tippet and fly size. Concentrate on attractors as your lead fly with small midge patterns trailed behind.

A bump in flows on 1/22 are only making a good thing better. One of the best close to home options for the front range, S. Boulder Creek at the tailwater below Gross Reservoir is fishing well. As long as flows stay where they are for a while ice won’t be a problem and there will be plenty of open water.

As of 1/26 it seemed that from huntsman gulch down had open areas, although the majority of the canyon is iced over. The plunge pools right above Mayhem Gulch are also currently open. The upper stretches of the kayak park in the Golden Mile were open, but ice jams are a problem as you get closer to Washington St.

The Big T should be on every winter anglers radar. Although cold and often windy, the stretch below Lake Estes still has a lot of fish actively feeding, especially on the warmer and calm days. Small flies, light tippet, subtle presentations, and patience are key here this time of year. Bring a good selection of midge dries and nymphs #20 or smaller. Cover water and find feeding fish.

As of 1/27 we’ve received word that the dam work is wrapping up, and flows should be coming out of the normal plumbing, and not the siphon. Look for the Mysis bite to really pick up. Because of the size of the fish you’ll encounter start with 5x, and downsize from there. Egg Patterns and tiny Midge patterns should also be a part of your starting lineup.
