Fishing Around Boulder In A Nutshell

Boulder Creek See Full Report

As of 1/20 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.

The best bet for S. Boulder Creek is going to be at the tailwater below Gross Reservoir. 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. As of 1/20 it seemed that from huntsman gulch down had open areas, although there were shady areas that contained shelf ice.

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, and has been a great winter option. With the work being done on the dam, the primary bugs are still tiny midges. Mysis are still picking up a few fish, but with the siphoning happening, shrimp aren’t currently getting sucked into the system. Because of the size of the fish you’ll encounter start with 5x, and downsize from there. Egg Patterns, Mysis Shrimp and tiny Midge patterns have been the most consistent.
