Connor and I took off up to Clear Creek Sunday around 11:00am. Fishing was a little slow at first as I only brought three to the net during the first few hours, one on a prince and the others on a jujubaetis. However, after 3:00pm, everything began to change. The temperature dropped a little which inevitably triggered a nice hatch of mayflies. It was at this time the surface of the river came alive. Trout ranging from 10 to 12 inches began to rise consistently taking both adults and emergers from the slower pools of the river. I strapped on a parachute adams and proceeded to cast into the madness. We were not disappointed. In only two hours Connor and I had landed about 15. It was a fun day… Just a light wind and we had the river all to ourselves.

I like fishing clear creek. They have a nice fly shop and lots of nice little shops to eat at in idaho springs when you want to take a break.

You are right about that! We often stop in there for a few beers and a burger when the fishing is slow! I also like the fact that I can be hooked into a nice trout only 30 minutes after walking out my front door!

I here piccis has great Italian food and haven't had the chance to try it yet. But you can park there and fish right along the highway. I did have a breakfast wrap at the cafe next to the James Underhill museum and it was delicious.
