Fly Fishing on the South Platte Has been Great this Week!

James with the catch of the week 23 1/2″

With the warmer weather and increasing water temperatures over the past week, the trout fishing in Colorado and on the South Platte has really heated up.  I had a chance to bend a rod at Deckers last Sunday after our sight fishing clinic and had fish doing back flips to eat an egg pattern.  Guided a trip above Chatfield on Monday, and fishing was pretty steady for browns and rainbows in the 10-12″ range.  Still no sign of any rainbows moving out of Chatfield to spawn but I will keep an eye on it (and let you all know after the fish are gone haha 😛 )  What I do know and will say is that fish have started moving into the Dream Stream out of Eleven Mile Reservoir.  James was out yesterday fishing on his own and tied into a serious SLAB that stretched the tape out to 23 1/2″.  Not to bad for a shop dog!  Also look for the “big midge” to start showing up in Deckers any day now.
