Clear Creek

Clear Creek has been fishing very well and the fish have been very cooperative.   I've been using Orange Stimulators with legs and Amy's Ants.  Both of these flies have been working very well.  This is my first season using Amy's Ants and I am now a believer and I have only been using it a few weeks.  The fish are sitting next to the bank in the slower water ready to pounce my Dry as it drifts past them.  The fish aren't usually too big but it is a lot of fun with a 2 or 3 weight rod and reel.  The expected catch are Rainbows and Browns in the 8 to 12 inch range.  I've been fishing town of Idaho Springs.  Fishing from Idaho Springs all the way down Clear Creek Canyon has all been fishing well for me.  I really enjoy this stretch of water this time of year.  For me, it doesn't get much better than this.  I will fish a Dry Fly whenever I can get away with it........

Thanks Josh
