St. Vrain Creek

Latest Guide Report


Report by: Rachel Donati

North St Vrain: Wild Basin

Another good day at Wild Basin. The fishing was not as hot but still good. We used Pearl and Elk Hair Caddis to catch a ton of Brookies. To catch bigger fish (and less) we were using Chubbies and Perdigons.

Fly Fishing the St. Vrain

The creek is full of opportunistic fish that are eager to take a dry fly, so take advantage of the great caddis, blue wing olive and terrestrial fishing. The midges that call the St. Vrain home are active all year and are always a safe bet come the colder months of the year. This is a great chance to get out and test some of those midge patterns that you have been drooling over all winter. The Fishing in the town of Lyons can be fantastic.
