Current River Flow Updates

1/9/19 -- Our live flows for Bear Creek are actually incorrect. We are working to fix the live flows as soon as possible. With that being said, Bear Creek from Evergreen Lake down to the town of Morrison is for the most part, completely iced over. If you are looking for a similar stretch of water to fish that is also close to town and fairly accessible, we recommend the lower stretches of Clear Creak in and around the town of Golden, CO.

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.

Seasonal Conditions

We love Bear Creek due to it's close proximity to our shop in Denver. Within 30 minutes, anytime between Spring and Fall you can fly fish on Bear Creek. In the Winter, it's probably best to look at tailwater options as everything tends to freeze over.
