Summer: Caddis, Mayflies, Small Stoneflies, Terrestrials, Attractor Dry Flies

The St. Vrain can be fished year round, however like most small streams, really shines during the summer months when the dry fly fishing is at it's peak.
Highway #7 follows the St. Vrain for apprixmately ten miles. there are numerous public access along this route.
A trailhead off Hwy 72 at County Road 96 is another good option if you're looking to get off the pavement and hike into the backcountry.
