South Platte Hopper Fishing

The water in the South Platte has cleared dramatically this past week and flows are once again at a normal August level. The hoppers are definitely out and about and fish are starting to look for them. The key with hopper fishing is covering water. Casting to one spot for more than three tosses is wasted energy. Keep moving up the banks. Also concentrate your efforts more in the hot afternoon hours. This is when the hopper activity is at it’s highest. Windy afternoons also help to blow the hoppers off the edge and onto the water. As shown in the picture above, don’t worry about a delicate landing with a hopper. We have found the hard the hopper pattern hits the water the better. For more specifics on fishing hoppers swing into the shop and we would be happy to go over the ins and outs of various skating methods that have proven productive this past week.
