Clear Creek reports

Michael Thompson (Michael) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: Fished Clear Creek at the Kayak Park in Golden. Some nice riffles between the snow and ice. A few nibbles, but no bites. Guess we didn't have their number today. Pleasant morning though. (01/16/12)
Jim Cannon (jcbluequill) reported - 1 - Excellent fly fishing: Clear Creek
Flow: Lawson 107
 
Clarity:Good

Water Temperature: Mid 50's

Major Food Organisms: Caddis and Attractor Dries

Hatches: Caddis and Attractor Dires

14 Day Forecast:Clear Creek is awesome and should stay that way until the next big rain or it freezes over. Get on Clear Creek now as it is amazing!!!

Tips and Other Information:Fish the edges with a dry-dropper set-up like an Amy's Ant with a 14 Tungsten Prince or Pheasant Tail. A Dirty Bird dropper in olive has been super effective the last couple of days
Effective Patterns: #18 Hot Tail Flash Eggs, #20, Tungsten Prince nymphs, Tungsten Iron Sally nymphs, Olive Dirty Birds and Pat's Rubber Legs in the smaller sizes

Andy Idema (aidema) reported - 4 - Poor fly fishing: Fished Clear Creek last weekend. Didn't even see a trout and it was too windy to cast. Bummer. (05/06/10)
