River Information

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.

Seasonal Conditions

Boulder Creek 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.
