Spring Flowers

June 12, 2016
Good evening from Decker’s, Colorado!! Sorry I couldn’t get the river report out this morning, had a website issue, as I am new to web designing!! The river is at 406(cfs) as of this afternoon, checked with Flies-n-lies earlier this morning when I was out. It’s that time of year in the Valley where the Wildflowers are blooming on the rock walls and by the riverside. I’m hoping to get a few posted tomorrow. I didn’t see as many midges coming off like yesterday, but it was considerably cooler earlier this morning then it was yesterday at the same time. As I’m out on my walk each day, I don’t necessarily go out with the intentions of what I’m going to blog about, I just simply walk among the river and let mother nature and the wildlife direct me to what “it” has is store for me to share with you each day. The beautiful part of my life here in Decker’s, as the only full-time resident, is the ability to walk out the front door and know that all of this beauty means nothing if you don’t take time to take it all in. And as a very special person in my life these days likes to say, “Stop and Smell the Roses”[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”11″ gal_title=”spring flowers”]

Have a Great Evening!

Morning “Walk-About”

JUNE 11, 2016

Good Morning from Chef Chris, here in Decker’s, Colorado. Beautiful morning on the South Platte River. I took a walk along the YMCA road this morning, as I will be doing each day, mostly early mornings so I can report to you the accurate weather and river conditions as I see them right out my front door!  The guys at Flies http://www.flies-n-lies.com let me know the river was at about 410cfs, and you can see the forecast above for our area.  It’s warming up quickly, but still a little cooler before the sun makes it up over Decker’s.  The water looks pretty clear up here to me for the 410cfs, but just a little cloudier downstream.  I photographed a few successful fisherman this morning. Saw some early morning Midge hatches and fish were sipping on the surface along the edges of the river, from the bridge in Decker’s,  to the hill by Lone Rock Campground. Be sure to stop in to the Decker’s Corner Café http://www.deckerscorner.com to cool off with a refreshing cold drink, ice cream, shake or try our new Frozen espresso shake with real espresso!!!
