Current River Flow Updates

Latest Update 11/28/2022--

Deep pockets with any form of cover and depth will be holding all of the fish this time of year. Lightweight dry dropper set ups are a great approach for lower flows on small water. (Small terrestrial #16, trailed by a bead head nymph in #16-18)

Historical River Flow

River Information

Bear Creek is a great spot close to Metro Denver, especially for those that only have a few hours to wet a line. This is 3wt water or smaller, so leave the big sticks at home. During the Fall and Winter months, productivity of the fishing will depend highly on the time of day and overall weather conditions. Fishing will be best from 11am - 4pm, particularly on the warmer and sunny days. Adverse weather will most likely create difficult conditions and potential high and off color water. This is a good year round option as Bear Creek will rarely freeze for prolonged periods of time.

Tips and Tricks:

"Lair of the Bear" is the most heavily fished area along Bear Creek. Explore a bit and you may be pleasantly surprised.

Seasonal Conditions

We love Bear Creek due to it's close proximity to our shop in Denver. Within 30 minutes, anytime between Spring and Fall you can fly fish on Bear Creek. In the Winter, it's probably best to look at tailwater options as everything tends to freeze over.
