South Platte at Deckers Fishing Report

There is nothing we enjoy more than watching trout eat on the surface and now is the time to take advantage of this.  The dry fly fishing on the South Platte River near the town of Deckers has been nothing short of fantastic.  This river is a bug factory and recently the fish have been looking up!  We are seeing consistent hatches of Blue Wing Olives, Tricos, Pale Morning Duns, Caddisflies, and even Golden Stones.  Only on a tailwater like the South Platte can you have the opportunity to find all those different bugs hatch on the same day.  We also have plenty of terrestrials like grasshoppers, ants, and beetles getting blown into the water, furthering the dry fly opportunities.  Put away the bobbers and grab some dry fly floatant.  So much of the year we need to nymph to these picky fish, enjoy the dry fly fishing while we can!

We only have a few guided fly fishing trips still available for September.  Plenty of private water fishing is still available for October as are our guided fly fishing trips to the South Platte and the Eagle.  Reach out to get on the calendar! (303) 325-5515
