Bye-Bye South Boulder Creek, Hello Big T

South Boulder Creek has remained one of the most consistent fisheries on the front range over the last few months. With an excellent population of healthy fish that don't particularly care about a perfect presentation, and a flat-line flow around 90 cfs since October, the South Boulder Creek has been a front range favorite while other streams lock up in ice for the season.

As of yesterday, the South Boulder Creek is experiencing a different kind of flat-line. Denver Water OBVIOUSLY has different priorities with their water, priorities that are sometimes impossible to understand (because it makes no sense).

The only thing that is consistent this time of year is our annual disappointment when Denver Water drops this bomb on us. From 92 cfs, down to 7 cfs overnight. We wish you the best SBC, and we hope to see you again soon.

As for the Big T, strong fish and lots of them. These healthy browns and bows can be a little picky about light tippets and a delicate presentation, but the Big Thompson can be very rewarding. Also not having to deal with ski traffic is a plus, Big T-humbs up.
