With the cooler temps, Clear Creek has dropped and is picking up a bit. Still watch for rafters in the canyon, and tubers in the Golden Mile, as well as use caution while wading. Flows will likely rise again with storms, and warmer weather.
For dries, the old standbys of Stimulators, Chubby Chernobyl, and Hippie Stompers have been great, but with the current drop in flows we have also had success with Parachute Adams and Parachute Hares Ears. Be on the lookout for BWO hatches on cloudy cool days with reduced flows.
For nymphs, throw Girdle Bugs, Runt Stones, Jigged Stones, (if you’re missing fish, size down a bit), BTS Mayflies, Warrior Perdigons, San Juans and Squirmies
Temperature: Upper 50s
