South Platte Deckers

Rating - Very_Good   

Wednesday, Sep 21 2022
The flows are currently at 172 cfs. and have been stable for several days now. These are still really great flows in the Deckers corridor. The dry fly fishing should increase exponentially. The fish are very comfortable right now with these flows. Anglers should still consider leading their rigs with larger flies followed by hatch specific patterns. Cranefly larva, scuds, worms, as well as midges, BWO's, PMD's, and some Trico's. Water temps are great in this area and shouldn't be a concern this summer. The water is colder and this area has been unaffected by high water temps. Right now there is some pretty decent Midge, some Trico, PMD and BWO activity and that should just increase as the days go on. Look for the mornings and evenings for the best feeding activity. Nymphing is the best strategy right now although you can still find pods of rising fish. The dry fly fishing will increase with the drop in flows. Its a good idea to have a dry fly rod rigged up for those opportunities.
