Clear Creek Fishing

The CC is running great and the fish are Very active right now. You can see fall arriving with the changing of the leaves and I think the browns will start to fatten up real soon. We hit “The LANE” Just after “Big Rock” and killed it in the morning. After taking samples last night from the river there was a lot of web spinning Caddis out there a size 16 straight hook dubbed with tan and silver and a black bead head did the trick! I had four fish on in the first section all with good takes. Nymphing seemed to be the best bet, but i did switch over by noon to a stimi-dropper and had some success. BWO’s came off about the same time but the constant 10 mph winds blew them all over. Pattern suggestions: Caddis nymph’s in grey, white or tan, BWO size 20 and BWO emerger or small nymphs. Stimi’s in yellow or orange and if the timing seems right a crippled hopper should do the trick! ( try smaller to medium sizes)
