St. Vrain Creek

Latest Guide Report


Report by: FRAadam

The Vrain has been pretty consistent with relatively steady flows, and the good news is with the recent stormy weather there have been less kayaks, SUPs, and tubers in the creek. That being said, the Button Rock area has still been best, though good reports in Lyons have been picking up as well.

For dries, we’ve been using Stimulators, Chubby Chernobyl, Chubby Golden Stones, and AR’s BWO.

For nymphs, we’ve been using Jigged Stones, Pat’s Rubber Legs, Runt Stones, Rainbow Warriors, BTS mayflies, and ID theft in BWO.

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.
