Rocky Mountain National Park offers fantastic fishing for anglers of all skill sets. Whether it be searching for Brown trout in Moraine Park or native Cutthroats in the plethora of mountain lakes and streams, it has something to offer for everyone.  The rivers and streams in "the park" have settled into their summer flows.  Looking for deeper pools and slower water with a dry dropper rig is a great way to find fish this time of year. Fish should be eager to come up and eat your dry flies. We recommend trying terrestrials like a small Chubby Chernobyl or Amy's ant, as well as attractor patterns like the Chew Toy, Royal Wulff, or Humpy. A classic Parachute Adams is never a bad idea. Have fun with your fly selection because these fish are often greedy and willing to eat. Try hanging a pheasant tail nymph, a hares ear, or a prince nymph under your dryfly and drifting those through some of the deeper pools and cut banks. If you are headed to Rocky Mountain National Park, stop by the shop and we can show you a few of our favorite flies for the area and give you a few extra tips on where to fish!
