When the weather is mild, Rocky Ford can be a good prospect. However, a cold snap will make fishing unpleasant and unpredictable. Check road conditions and the weather forecast before heading here.

On mild days where the temperature climbs into the 40s, look for hatches of blue-winged olives or midges. A size 20 Griffiths Gnat or Sprout Midge will do for the latter, a size 18-20 Sparkle Dun, Baetis Cripple or Parachute Baetis for the former. In the absence of a hatch (and trout who are responding to it) go subsurface with a CDC Bubble Brassie, Blood Midge, small leech or olive Scud; the latter may be your most effective option.

If the fishery is not crowded, you can sight-fish easily and effectively. If it's crowded--and it will be on weekends--you might spot some trout, but they will be more skittish and less likely to respond; the trout you don't see are more likely to take your fly if the Creek is crowded.

You don't have to worry about rattlesnakes if you fish here in December.
