The deeper plunge pools and faster water through town are still open and still fishing well!  You start to see ice by the time you hit Black Tiger. Anywhere deep and free of ice will hold fish and if you can get your nymphs deep enough, you will find fish on the feed. With the low, clear water in town, consider dropping your tippet and fly size.

The best bet for S. Boulder Creek is going to be at the tailwater below Gross Res. 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.

Clear Creek is really starting to see ice. Find open areas where the sun can hit it and concentrate on the deeper holes.

It is officially cold! It is time for anglers that like to fish in the winter to begin to only focus on tailwater fisheries. Lucky for us, we have a great one within an hour drive from Boulder.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. Small flies, light tippet, subtle presentations, and patience are key here this time of year.

The Blue has been holding steady at 110 for some time now, making sight fishing much easier now than most of the summer. Primary bugs are Midges with some BWOs mixed in. You may need to bust out the light tippet to get them to eat with the lower water. Egg Patterns, Mysis Shrimp and tiny Midge patterns have been the most consistent.
