South Platte/Decker’s fishing report 9/23/16

Good Evening my fellow fish enthusiasts!

Blogging to you today from Bethany Beach, Delaware. However, as promised, I’m here to at least deliver to you the current river flow conditions and the basic “lowdown” on the current bugs catching the fish! Fortunately, I have some waders and boots on the ground to give me a little head’s up to what’s happening with the bugs around Decker’s and Trumbull in my absence!  Mornings hatches of  Midges and Tricos are consistently doing well, along with   Blue winged olives, but they seem to be more prevalent in the evening time. Mid-day, a combination of dry-dropping and nymphing has been productive with an Amy’s Ant, trailing a variety of emerging bugs such as the Chocolate Thunder, jujubeatis, and Mercury Flashback RS2. With a three-fly nymphing rig, consisting of either a San Juan Worm or egg pattern up top, with something like a buckskin or other small midge like the fire or miracle midge as a trailer is getting the attention of the eager trout!  Flows have been consistent, with a 445 through Trumbull/Decker’s, and a comparable flow in the Canyon, giving us good clarity and a break from the heavy moss we saw when the flows were being adjusted.  The weather outlook for the weekend looks good, with mostly sunny skies, high temperatures in the mid-60’s and overnight lows in the 40’s.  Remember! Book a night in a one of the eight cabins available through Flies and Lies or the Decker’s Country Store. Simply visit our  SERVICES page for more information on rates and availability! Also, if you’re visiting Decker’s, stop in the the Decker’s Corner Cafe for a Stellar Breakfast Burrito and great cup of Joe! Visit for the full menu and business hours!  Thanks for spending a few minutes with me each day, as I try to provide you the most up to date fishing report available from the beautiful South Platte River Valley, Decker’s, Colorado, whether I’m physically there or not! Until next time folks, have a great evening and I hope to see on the river soon!
