Decker’s, Colorado July 4th 2018

Happy 4th of July to All!

     Just wanted to give you a quick update on the 4th of July fun around Decker’s! The Tubing is pretty good right now, with flows on the South Platte at 205 (cfs). This is great news, as the flows remained historically low for the first part of the summer season.  Stage 2 Fire Ban in Effect!!! Jefferson County! The conditions in the Pike National Forest are beyond dry! If you witness anyone illegally starting or maintaining any outdoor fire, please report them to the Forest Service, or call 911! 

    Fishing Update!

Current Flow below Cheeseman Dam and through Decker’s- 205


Water Temperature-44-47*

Bugs working for me- Trico Spinners, PMD’s, Parachute Adams, Juju Midge #18-22 (fond of Purple), Stone Flies (been seeing lots of black ones the last two days), Zebra midges of all! Ye’ Ole Rs-2, the Black has been working well for me, however, the olive has too!. HOPPERS-Purple Chubby Cherynoble, Amy’s Ant, Loco Beetle. The fish have a tendency to lay off the hoppers during the flow bumps, as they simply can’t see the bug floating above. Not to mention, they are feeding on an abundance of food down below!  On the streamer side of things,  the  Black and Olive Wooley Bugger(streamer) have been working well when we see the flow bumps.  

Please check out and “Like” our Facebook page,! That’s all I’ve go for now folks! Hope to see you out there on the river soon!
