St. Vrain Creek

Latest Guide Report


Report by: Rachel Donati

Very cold morning, got on the water around 9:15/9:30. Banks and slower side sections had 1/4” ice on the water and the fish were holding deep.  We had a lot of smoke blowing in as the winds shifted and increased. Both clients had strikes and hook ups on sz16 tan chubby and a sz16 purple haze. The brook trout are getting on the spawn for sure. Water was very very skinny and best tips are to approach the water as low and slow as possible.

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.
