February 12, 2019 Fishing Update-Cheesman Canyon & Decker’s

[ngg src=”galleries” ids=”14″ exclusions=”174″ display=”basic_thumbnail”]Good morning Folks!
     Sorry, been away from the river for a few days, got a Mom that’s not doing so well. However, before saying “so long” as I left the east coast, we decided not to say “good bye.” She told me that I should never stop living and loving each day. She also told me to always follow my dreams. So, here’s how I’m seeing things after a couple days on the South Platte. Flows below Cheesman remain at 59 cfs. Through Decker’s & Trumbull, we’ve got about the same! Don’t let that “Below Brush Creek”’gauging station report fool ya! That thing is consistently 12-15 cfs. OFF!, I must say, it’s been a pretty good couple of days, all in the Canyon! Success came with a variety of bugs! The size #24, black beauty, #24 Rainbow Warrior, #16 micro-leech (Brown), Size#24 Red Rojo-Midge, and a size #30, YES #30, Top Secret midge. Also, most of my time was spent well above the Ice Box and Family Pools. Target the actively feeding fish in the deeper runs and fish that are hanging out on shelves and drop-offs. That’s all for now folks! Hope to see you out there on the river soon!
