Oct.14, 2016 Decker’s Fishing Update

[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”73″ gal_title=”October 14 nice brown on dry flies”]


Hello Folks! Lot’s of fun out there today, with the bugs in the air, on the water, and most importantly, fish on the HOOK! The 50cfs drop in flow yesterday, combined with the warm temperatures and lots of sunshine, the bugs were coming off left and right! As a result, I fished from about 1:30pm, until 6pm, with nothing but a Parachute Adams, Blue-Winged-Olive,  and a couple of Sparkle Duns. All of which were size #22.  With one break for lunch and a round of tug of war with our dog Bailey, I hooked into ten fish during that period! Most fish were in the 12-14″ range, but I did pull a few big browns closer to the banks, that were in the 16-18″ range. Currently in Trumbull, the flow is at 268cfs, with 262cfs, below Cheesman Dam. The weather looks great for the weekend, with temps in the upper 60’s and low 70’s. Look for lots of pressure in the immediate area around Decker’s and upstream on Ycamp Road (75), but be sure to take advantage of the less crowded stretches of river, the variety of conditions, and the less pressured fish of the lower river. A great place to begin your day is to go downstream the 11 miles from Decker’s, all the way to the end of the paved road, and fish your way back to Decker’s.  Park anywhere you see a brown sign with a white “P” There are also many day use areas along the Platte River road that require a small fee, but do offer restrooms and picnic tables. More tomorrow after a morning of cycling! That’s all for now my friends. Today’s gallery is a few shots from around Decker’s and Trumbull, along with one of the Brown Trout I caught today. Until next time, have a great evening and I hope to see you on the river soon.
