South Platte - Waterton Canyon

Rating - Unknown   

Monday, Nov 14 2022
Flows are currently at 189 CFS Flows are lowering and nymph rigs with baetis, worms, eggs, and leeches are working well. Also the usual small midge patterns sizes 20-24 like the black beauty and zebra midges. Caddis Pupa are being seen and awaiting the transition into the fall dries and midges. For nymphing, small mayfly, juju baetis, and pheasant tails (red headed) and mall midges are still consistent , smaller diameter tippet and adjusting depth frequently is a key strategy. Caddis emerger and lightweight emerger rigs are beginning to be successful. Fluorcarbon tippet in 5-7x is most effective for nymphing , utilize split shot or larger tungsten head point flies to get down deep, adjust depth prior to switching patterns. If you're not having success with the micro flies and midges, throw on an egg pattern or worm.
