Boulder Canyon is Waking Up!

Spring is slow coming in the high country...but, with these beautiful sunny days the creeks are beginning to wake up early this year! If you decide to drive up your nearest canyon creek this weekend, take warm clothes and some small, weighted nymphs. The trout on Boulder Creek seem to be keyed in on midges and small mayflies... Find some open pocket water and run a two-fly nymph rig though it. A #20 black bead-head Zebra midge pupa with a #22 black or purple JuJu Baetis behind it will do the trick. Go during the middle of the day for best chances at feeding fish.
