Current River Flow Updates

Update 9/14/2020-- Boulder Creek is fishing great just about everywhere- from all the way downtown to above Nederland you'll be able to find plenty of pocket water. Hopper dropper setups are still the best way to put fish in the net here. If you find yourself struggling to get eats on the big hopper, don't be afraid to downsize. Micro chubbies, small adult caddis, and small simulators are great alternatives for fish that are refusing the large hopper. Bead head nymphs consist of Jigged CDC pheasant tails, black Copper Johns, and zebra midges. You can't go wrong with a tungsten bead nymph in sizes #14-18 on this local gem.

River Information

Boulder Creek is a wonderful little fishery that originates in the front range and runs through the town of Boulder. This creek holds primarily Rainbow and Brown trout, however Brook and Cutthroat trout live here as well. Dry fly fishing can be very good in the warmer months and a 3wt or smaller rod is ideal.

Seasonal Conditions

Boulder Creek is can be fished year round. Midges are active throughout the year, however arguably the best way to fish this creek is in the warmer months with a dry dropper rig.
