South Platte-Elevenmile Canyon

Rating - Good   

Wednesday, Sep 21 2022
The canyon has been hot/cold as far as fishing goes over the last couple of weeks. Some days are great and others are slow. The trico hatches have been fairly strong with fish eating this mayfly subsurface, as adults and as spinners. This hatch has been going on for awhile now so the fish are getting a bit more picky. Go really small on your Trico imitations in all life stages. The dry fly fishing has been great with Trico, some PMD, fall BWO, and Terrestrial activity. The fishing can be technical but fish are feeding pretty hard at certain times. Look for some BWO's to hatch in the afternoons, especially on cloudy days.
