Location: Private water on the South Platte River 1/2 day trip in the afternoon

Number of Anglers: 2

Weather: Very nice; sunny, with temps in the 70’s.

River Condition: Water temps in mid 40’s by mid day.  Water is running about 300 cfs and there is moderate visibility.

Mike and his son Jack did a great job of finding and landing some beautiful trout this Fathers’ Day.

We started fishing in early afternoon and on literally the 2nd cast ,Mike hooked up a nice 16-inch trout.  That set the tone for the afternoon.  Jack was quick to follow with a solid hook-up of his own, and both father and son quickly had several nice trout in the net.  We worked over the holding water with care and the trout just kept cooperating.

It was a fun day for everyone and a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

With the waters stabilizing after a large snowpack year, the fishing is heating up and should get even better as stream flows continue to come down.  Give us a call for the latest conditions and availability at 303-325-5515.

Beautiful brown trout caught nymphing a deep pool.

Jack hooked up with a big trout. Nice Job Jack!
