Bear Creek (Morrison)

Rating: 2/5

Current River Conditions

April 15, 2024

Bear Creek was fishing good prior to bump in flows, now the water is rising and getting dirty. I would get out while you still can, but be prepared, soon the creek will be flooded with off-colored water and won't be fishable for a fair amount of time. So, if you're looking for some solitude on the front range we highly recommend getting to Bear! Nymphing and hopper-dropper has been our go-to methods as of late, but spring BWO's are hatching everyday which allows for some fantastic surface action.
