Current River Flow Updates

Latest Update 6/24/2022--

Flows are coming into shape and fishing has been good. Soft water, among the edges and behind structure are pieces of water that produce the most fish this time of year. Splashy eats are everywhere this time of year, and you can seek them out via terrestrials, caddis, & mayflies (anything highly visible/buoyant, #8-16). Dropper flies are working below the hopper too- anything jigged in #12-16 works great.

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.
