This Week on “The” South Platte

Words simply can’t describe how amazing the South Platte below Deckers has been this week.  You simply need to experience it for yourself.  More 20 inch fish have gone into the net this week on the lower river than in the last 4 years combined.  Needless to say the South Platte is back.The water is flowing at a perfect 225 CFS and it’s crystal clear.  There have been enormous hatches of Pale Morning Duns, Caddis, and stone flies The bug life this summer continues to amaze us.  Last week we caught fish on Green Drake dries.  Today we saw fish thrashing adult salmon flies  (yes true #4 Salmon Flies).If you really want to learn this river, give us a call and get on on the river with us. He really is in a league of his own this summer on the South Platte.   720-851-4665

About Our Guide Service

Guide Service Philosophy
Our
guide service is here to help you become  more knowledgeable, skilled,
and self sufficient anglers. Catching fish on a fly is a process and we
take time to explain it in a way you can understand. After a lifetime
on the water and thousands of guided trips, we have collaborated to
create a
streamlined system of teaching and fishing that consistently proves
successful.  After a day with one of our guides, we encourage you to
utilize our shop as a free resource for fly recommendations, fishing
reports, and any fishing related questions you might have.

Public Water, Wild Fish, Close to Home
You
would be hard pressed to find an accomplished angler who learned to
fish by paying rod fees  on top of guide fees to fish private water
(trout petting zoos). Others might choose to fish with a guide on the
Bighorn where trout are so thick you can walk across their backs. The
waters we guide  (South Platte, Colorado) are challenging fisheries
that demand a certain proficiency in fly fishing fundamentals. When you
become successful on our local waters,  you will naturally gain the
ability and “fishiness” to catch trout anywhere in the world.

Beginners Learn How to..
.
-Tie the necessary knots and set up essential rigs
