Latest Update 10/6/14- Boulder Creek is fishing well for the time being. On warmer days, a bushy caddis or terrestrial dry with a small bead head dropper should be all you need for some small stream excitement! Double nymph rigs should also produce if nothing wants to look up.

Boulder Creek is a wonderful little fishery that originates in the front range and runs through the town of Boulder. This creek holds primarily Rainbow and Brown trout, however Brook and Cutthroat trout live here as well. Dry fly fishing can be very good in the warmer months and a 3wt or smaller rod is ideal.
Winter/Spring: Midges, Baetis
Summer: Midges, mayflies, caddis, terrestrials
Fall: Midges, mayflies, caddis
Boulder Creek is can be fished year round. Midges are active throughout the year, however arguably the best way to fish this creek is in the warmer months with a dry dropper rig.
From Boulder, take Canyon Blvd, Hwy 119 west. Pullouts are numerous on the nearly 14 miles of fishable water before reaching Barker Reservoir Dam.
