Location: Clear Creek – Boulder Creek

Fishing Conditions: It was good fishing after we moved to Boulder Creek but the wind kept us from getting anything on the Clear Creek.

General Comments: It was one of the windier days but non the less you both were troopers and held in to get some fish landed later in the day. You were both a pleasure to hangout with during the day.

About Clear Creek Fly Fishing

When all the rivers and streams seem to be overloaded with anglers, Clear Creek always has an empty hole to fish. Clear Creek parallels I-70 from just east of Idaho Springs to Georgetown. Idaho Springs is 32 miles west of Denver. For access to the stream, take exit 240 at Idaho Springs. Turn left, then turn right on old Highway 6. The stream is open to fishing most of its length.

The water can be swift, so care should be taken while wading. a basic 4- or 5-weight outfit is fine, but bring plenty of split shot.
