River Information

Bear Creek is a great spot close to Metro Denver, especially for those that only have a few hours to wet a line.  This is 3wt water or smaller, so leave the big sticks at home.  During the Fall and Winter months, productivity of the fishing will depend highly on the time of day and overall weather conditions.  Fishing will be best from 11am - 4pm, particularly on the warmer and sunny days.  Adverse weather will most likely create difficult conditions and potential high and off color water.  This is a good year round option as Bear Creek will rarely freeze for prolonged periods of time.

Tips and Tricks:

"Lair of the Bear" is the most heavily fished area along Bear Creek.  Explore a bit and you may be pleasantly surprised.
