South Platte River - Deckers - July 20th, 2004
supplied by: Colorado Fly Fishing Adventures, Inc.
FISHING: Fair
Flow: 150 CFS

Rating: 1

Outlook: Stocking trucks should come soon

The Deckers area has been fishing inconsistent due to the always changing water color and clarity.  The river turn black every time it rains (which has been almost every day recently) in the South Platte valley.  Along with the black water comes poor fishing.  If the water color is brown the fishing has been decent.  Most fish are being taken below the surface.

Don't leave home without:  micro san juan worm, pmd emergers 18, sparkle winged RS2's 18, buckskin 16-18,

South Platte River @ Deckers

Flow: 82.6 CFS

Rating: 1

Outlook: Stocking trucks should come soon

The Deckers area has been fishing more consistently as we move into the summer months.  Most fish are being caught on a double nymph rig with a san juan leading the way.  Deckers should receive a stocking of rainbows soon.

South Platte River - Deckers - June 4th, 2004
supplied by: Colorado Fly Fishing Adventures, Inc.
FISHING: Fair
Flow: 70 CFS

Rating: 1

Outlook: Stocking trucks should come soon

Low water conditions continue to plague this section of the Platte.  The fishing has been decent but it still isn't back to its prime form.  This section of water should receive a stocking early this summer which will help the fishing.

South Platte River - Deckers - May 19th, 2004

FISHING: Fair
River Flow and Gage Height [click here]

Flow: 75 cfs above the Deckers Bridge, 110 below the Deckers Bridge

Clarity: Fair to Poor

Water Temperature: Low 40’s

Major Food Organisms: Midges and baetis

Hatches: Midges and Baetis

14 Day Forecast: Look for low flows and challenging fishing. The best fishing will be above the Decker’s bridge between the Rock Garden and the Tee Pee Club. Look for excellent baetis hatches throughout the course of the next two weeks.

Tips and Other Information: Fishing remains challenging around the Deckers area due off colored water from Wig Wam Creek, Four-Mile Creek and Horse Creek. Below the Deckers Bridge the river is trashed! Piles of silt and granite are clogging the stream channel. This breaks my heart! The stretch above Deckers is beginning to clear, however; if it rains, this section will turn off-color with a drop of a hat! The baetis are hatching with consistency (adding lots of excitement) every afternoon between 1:00-3:00 pm. Effective dry fly patterns will include #20 Sparkle Duns, #22 Parachute Adams, #22 Blue Duns, and #22 Hi-Vis Baetis. Nymphs of choice (to be fished during the non-hatch periods or before the hatch) are: #20 Sparkle Wing RS II’s, #20 Mercury FB Pheasant Tails, #20 Black Beauties, #20 Top Secret Midges, #20 Orange Scuds, and #16 Nuclear Eggs. You’ll need a bright attractor if you plan on fishing this area! A pink San Juan Worm, or “Nuke” Egg will fill the bill!

Effective Patterns: #20-22 Mercury Midge, #20-22 Mercury Baetis, #20-22 Bead Head Barr’s Emerger (baetis), #14 Pink San Juan Worm, #18-20 Dorsey’s Mercury Pheasant Tails, #18 Micro San Juan Worms, #20 Black Beauty, #16 Nuclear Eggs, #14 Orange and Olive Scuds, #20-26 Parachute Adams, #20-24 Hi Vis Baetis, and #20-22 Mathew’s Sparkle Dun.

14 Day Forecast: Look for low flows and challenging fishing. The best fishing will be above the Decker’s bridge between the Rock Garden and the Tee Pee Club. Look for excellent baetis hatches throughout the course of the next two weeks. Anglers can expect the big spring midge to hatch soon!

Tips and Other Information: Fishing remains challenging around the Deckers area due off colored water. Wig Wam Creek, Four-Mile Creek and Horse Creek are adding lots of color!

Flow: 55 cfs

Clarity: Fair

Water Temperature: Low 40’s

Major Food Organisms: Midges and baetis

Hatches: Midges and Baetis

14 Day Forecast: Look for low flows and challenging fishing. The best fishing will be above the Decker’s bridge. Look for the fish to move into the riffles and for the baetis hatch to intensify in the next few days. Anglers can expect the big spring midge to hatch soon!

Tips and Other Information: Fishing remains challenging around the Deckers area due to the low flows. The baetis are hatching with consistency (adding lots of excitement) every afternoon between 1:00-3:00 pm.

The best fishing has been between the Tee Pee Club and the Deckers Bridge. Special Note: The Wig Wam Club is conducting a stream improvement project, which may change the clarity of the river for the next couple of weeks. Also this is the time of year when Horse Creek typically adds a substantial amount of dirty water below the town of Deckers.

Effective Patterns: #20-22 Mercury Midge, #22-24 Mercury Baetis, #20-24 San Juan Emerger, #20-22 Bead Head Barr’s Emerger (baetis), #14 Pink San Juan Worm, #20-22 Dorsey’s Mercury Pheasant Tails, #18 Micro San Juan Worms, #24 Black Beauty, #16 Nuclear Eggs, #14 Orange and Olive Scuds, #20-26 Parachute Adams, #20-24 Hi Vis Baetis, and #20-22 Mathew’s Sparkle Dun.

FISHING: Fair
River Flow and Gage Height [click here]

Flow: 40 cfs

Clarity: Fair

Water Temperature: Low 40’s

Major Food Organisms: Midges and baetis

Hatches: Midges and Baetis

14 Day Forecast: Look for low flows and challenging fishing. The best fishing will be above the Decker’s bridge. Look for the fish to move into the riffles and for the baetis hatch to intensify in the next few days. Anglers can expect the big spring midge to hatch soon!

Tips and Other Information: Fishing remains challenging around the Deckers area due to these low flows. There is good news and light at the end of the tunnel. With the recent unseasonably warm weather, the baetis are starting to hatch a few days early. The hatches are sporadic, but nevertheless; within the next 10 days the hatch will be in full swing. Effective dry fly patterns will include #20 Sparkle Duns, #22 Parachute Adams, #22 Blue Duns, and #22 Hi-Vis Baetis. Nymphs of choice (to be fished during the non-hatch periods or before the hatch) are: #20 Sparkle Wing RS II’s, #20 Mercury FB Pheasant Tails, #20 Black Beauties, #20 Top Secret Midges, #20 Orange Scuds, and #16 Nuclear Eggs.

Current Conditions

Flow: 80 cfs

Clarity: Fair to good

Water Temperature: Low 30's

Major Food Organisms: Midges

Hatches: Sporadic midges

14 Day Forecast: Look for tough fishing and very cold water temps. Midges will be the bulk of the trout's diet for the next several weeks. Typically if the flow is under 50 cfs, the river (around Deckers) will freeze below the Twin Bridge area. Unless we get some cooperation from the Denver Water Board, this could be a long tough spring.

Tips and Other Information: Fishing remains challenging around the Deckers area with the low flows and cold water. Currently, you will work hard for every fish you hook! Your best bet is to plan on fishing above the Deckers Bridge in the Rock Garden, Bend Pool, and Lone Rock Campground areas. Fishing will be best with tiny RS II's, Mercury Midges, and Black Beauties in the slow, slack water. Anglers have been picking up a few fish, but overall fishing has been tough. Wear drab clothing, as the fish are very spooky. The best fishing will between 11: 00 am and 3:00 pm.

Effective Patterns: #20-22 Mercury Midge, #22-24 Mercury Baetis, #20-24 San Juan Emerger, #20-22 Bead Head Barr's Emerger (baetis), #14 Pink San Juan Worm, #20-22 Dorsey's Mercury Pheasant Tails, #18 Micro San Juan Worms, #24 Black Beauty, #16 Nuclear Eggs, #14 Orange and Olive Scuds, #20-26 Parachute Adams, #20-24 Hi Vis Baetis, #20-22 Mathew's Sparkle, and CDC Tricos.

14 Day Forecast: Look for tough fishing and very cold water temps. Midges will be the bulk of the trout's diet for the next several weeks. Typically if the flow is under 50 cfs, the river (around Deckers) will freeze below the Twin Bridge area. Unless we get some cooperation from the Denver Water Board, this could be a long tough winter.

Tips and Other Information: Currently the river is ice-free, but unfortunately the river will probably freeze again this weekend with the low flows with the forecasted “front” moving through. The Denver Water Board cut the flows back dramatically from only a few days ago, to a meager 35 cfs. Plan on fishing above the Deckers Bridge in the Rock Garden, Bend Pool, and Lone Rock Campground areas. Fishing will be best with tiny RS II's, Mercury Midges, and Black Beauties in the slow, slack water. Anglers have been picking up a few fish, but overall fishing has been tough.
