South Platte River: Deckers - 80CFS
Look for low flows and challenging fishing. The brown trout spawn is in full swing...please watch your step in shallow riffles as there are a lot of reds. Deckers has been fishing fair-to-good as of late. Anglers can expect reliable hatches of midges and blue-winged olives. The dry fly fishing has tapered off...but seriously dry fly anglers can still fool a few on dries. Egg-midge and egg-baetis nymph combos have been effective during the non-hatch periods.
Dream Stream - 75CFS
Dream Stream back up to 75 cfs. Fishing should improve quickly with the recent flow increase. Anglers can expect to see intermittent midges and sporadic Tricos and blue-winged olives. The brown trout spawn-run continues despite the low flows. Watch your step in shallow riffles...and please avoid fishing to trout sitting on reds!
Eleven Mile - 33CFS
Look for low flows and technical fishing. Anglers can expect hatches of intermittent midges and sporadic blue-winged olives. Flows were bumped from 15 cfs to 33 cfs. This will improve fishing dramatically. Anglers can expect hatches of midges and sporadic blue-winged olives.
Cheesman - 69 CFS
Currently, fishing is fair in Cheesman Canyon. Low flows are producing tough, yet rewarding fishing, for those anglers who like to work hard for a few fish. Anglers can expect to see a good a.m. midge hatch, followed by a sporadic blue-winged olive hatch mid day (1-3 pm.). Midges will begin hatching again around 3:00 p.m. and taper off by 5:00 p.m. Cheesman trout are keying on midge pupa and tiny Baetis nymphs. Think simple, sparse, and most importantly small! Egg patterns have been fooling trout in the faster riffles and slots below spawning flats. Don't be surprised to run across some fall spawning rainbows too.
