Boulder River Report 04/08/19
Colder weather has kept flows low and clear. With rain and snow this week, look for a bump in flows and some off color water. Try fishing a rubber leg nymph pattern like a girdle bug or Pat’s rubber legs in black, brown or coffee color along with a beadhead trailer fly like a prince nymph, hare’s ear, batman or pheasant tail. A San Juan Worm is always a good choice in off-color water too. Look for midges and BWOs to be coming off. If fish are on them on the surface, a smaller size parachute adams, purple haze or a midge cluster like a Griffith’s Gnat should do the trick. A Zebra Midge or smaller size pheasant tail trailed off of spotter dry fly should work as well. Also, try basic buggers in black and olive or the Grinch for streamers.
