Back to Boulder Creek!
Boulder Creek is low and clear (about 18cfs) but fishing very well! The water has gotten to about 40 degrees and the midges are out almost every day. The trout are feeding and often looking up! I have been doing well with a #20 midge pupa dropped about 18 inches behind a #18 Bluewing Olive dry fly. If the glare on the water is to severe, I keep the same dropper, but switch to a larger, more visible dry...such as a #16 Caddis Variant or #18 Clown Shoe Caddis dry. Most of my fish caught in town are on the pupa. Because the water is so low, be cautious and look for fish to be stacked up in the deeper water.
