We arrived at the property at 8am and talked with the owner to get an update on fishing, the river had been fishing well with some dry fly action but primarily nymphs. The day was hot without any cloud cover and no wind. We started on #14 grasshoppers and did get a few rises and saw a few rising fish. We switched to a #16 stimulator and were able to hook a few fish on top. We also caught fish on a #16 bead head prince and a dropper setup is ideal if you want to maximize your opportunities. Things slowed during mid-day but after lunch we had a nice blue wing olive hatch and many more rising fish. We landed a very nice 16" rainbow on the #20 BWO and fished the rest of the day with it, with fish piled up in the deeper holes we didn't have to move much but did have to throw it many times before getting just the right drift. Great experience, will fish it again soon. ~ Ed Shappell -- September 14th, 2015

Fished Clear creek on a beautiful day. The water was running low and gin clear, making spotting fish very simple. Stealth was the name of the game today, fish were stacked up in the slower bends and I was able to pull a couple beautiful little browns out but the caught fish spooked the rest of his buddies most of the time. Only fished a few hours but walked my wife and son around the beautiful property and took some pictures. Great Day. ~ Stefan Rausch -- November 19th, 2013

First time fishin this property. The owners Dad came out, walk me to the river and gave me a little history of the property, nice. Was using a dry/dropper set up. Got some lookers, caught one, lost a couple. Then lost it in the trees. Changed to a soft hackle nymph. Got acouple, got some lookers, lost a couple and got one real nice 14\" brown. Did not remember which way I could go when the river forked, so I fished back down. The weather was looking stormy so headed back to the car. Will fish this again. ~ Mike Miller -- August 23rd, 2013

I've fished here many times and love A-17 Clear Creek! Now, I'm not the most skilled fly fisherman to begin with but I almost always catch something. I found fishing on this property incredibly challenging today. Runoff is definitely effecting the fishing conditions. The water was very dirty. I couldn't see the bottom of the stream even in the shallowest of places. There was also quite a bit of fast moving water making wading a challenge. I fished from about 9:00am to 3:00pm and didn't catch anything but a tree. Didn't even have a nibble. Never saw a fish anywhere. And we all know there are tons of fish in this stream. I tried lots of different colors since the water was so dirty. Red and pink worms, green and hot pink nymphs, Copper Johns, Caddis flys, and various colored stimulators. All with no success. I think I'll wait a couple weeks to see if the conditions change and then give this one another try. ~ Bfried -- June 17th, 2013

The morning was windy but the afternoon turned nice. I took my daughter and she was able to tag along without waders. Caught 10 lively little browns, very heathy in the cold water, everything was on an RS2. The property owner came out to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. He was a very nice gentleman and it was a pleasure talking with him. ~ J.R. Barker -- April 14th, 2013
