New FRA Lids are in!!
Had a chance to run down to the South Platte at Deckers on Saturday. The flow was 88 CFS and clear above Horse Creek. The weather was perfect! A high around 48, and no wind. We primarily fished from Deckers up stream to Wigwam. After playing around with several different nymph combos, the ticket seemed to be a size 12 Amber scud, with a dropper of a black midge. We were able to pick up a few fish on a San Juan worm, Gray Reef Special, BTS Baetis and Hurricane Midge. The trick to fishing the South Platte this time of year is finding the deep holes and pockets. Hunt the water between Deckers down to Trumbull. The flow has dropped to 63 CFS this week but can change without warning so check out the stream flow data on our home page before heading out!
