Good Evening everyone!

Checking in this evening to give you a quick update on the river conditions here in Decker’s/Trumbull.  After the flow increase of the South Platte the other day, the moss has decreased considerably, and the chocolate milk of a river  we saw yesterday, and the day before, has thinned quite nicely.  We’ve got 337 cfs below the dam, with 332 in Trumbull.  Blue skies,  plenty of sunshine, and temps in the low 80’s’ provided an excellent day on the Platte! Great thing about September, the kids are back in school and the river is pretty wide-open. Weekends are still rather busy, but the weekdays are prime for some quality fishing at the hole of your choice, with plenty of open stretches of water to fish by yourself.  I didn’t fish much today, but got out just after 11:00 this morning to catch a few fish rising on a few of the remaining Trico’s that had died off and were drifting along the way. I threw on a single bug, no indicator, and quickly made two tosses about six feet upstream from where I saw the rise. First pass, nothing, second time through I was hooked up on a small rainbow which took a small, size 24 Parachute Adams. I had a couple of fish flash my bug over the next ten minutes, picking up a small brown and calling it a day. Tomorrow is looking like more of the same, with sunny skies and warm temperatures in the forecast. Keep in mind that Lone Rock Campground is the only campground in our area to accept reservations. Make yours right here at http://www.reserveamerica.com. Until tomorrow, have a great day and I hope to see you on the river!
