Clear Creek

Had a beautiful day out with almost no wind and decided to go try Clear Creek up high.  The flows had increased from 100cfs to 140cfs over the coarse of the day at one spot and 60cfs to 100cfs at the higher spot.  Both these levels were more than double since the last time I fished Clear Creek.  Needless to say the water was stained but still low enough to comfortably wade.  I try a spot by Dumont and get nothing to my surprise so I head up above Silver Plume to try some new water.  I try a couple different spots between Silver Plume and Bakersville and manage to pull out 5 Brookies with four of them on the Amy's Ant.  Tough day of fishing as far as numbers go, but I had one good day none the less.

  1. Have I mentioned that Clear Creek is my favorite waters to fish? Any reports on the construction in the canyon Kevin? Oh, and I've tied up a handful of Amy's Ants. You've convinced me that they must be the fly of choice on CC.

    1. I probably fish Clear Creek every forth day of fishing. It is my closest water other than Bear Creek, which is to busy for me. The construction in the canyon is about half way up between Golden and I-70 but there is plenty of water to be fished. Try out the smallest Amy's Ant you have and you won't be disappointed.

  2. Do you think it's too late to go to Bakersville now? Should I wait until after the runoff?

    1. If your going to go, I would hit it sooner than later. The flows right now are just above what I fished them at.
