South Platte - Deckers

Rating - Fair   

Tuesday, Jan 07 2020
The fishery has seen a good amount of pressure at this point in the season, so a stealthy presentation is mandatory. Tippet sizes upwards of 5x are required to find the most eats. There have been fish pulled from the surface with Griffiths gnats and tiny trico spinners, but a sensitive nymph-rig will find the most fish. Expect fish to be in slow holding areas, and deep runs/pools. Patterns like soft hackles, small caddis larva, and scuds are good point flies. Midges are very important - Black beauties, disco midges and top secrets are all great choices.
