Featured Trouts Guide Report of the Week - 5/19 Edition

Ivan Orsic / May 19, 2021

Each week we choose one report from our Guide Reports section of the FISHING INFORMATION page! Click the Guide Report dropdown and you'll find up-to-date Guide Reports from our professional fly fishing guides. Each report will detail the location, timing, hatch information, fly selection, and rigging.

Check out this recent report from Brian Hilbert. Brian's report discusses a recent walk/wade trip on the South Platte. Stay tuned to our Guide Reports section for more reports as we continue to get clients out on the water.

LOCATION: South Platte near Deckers
Brian Hilbert

"The day started a little slower for us in the morning but it did pick up for us in the afternoon. Nymphing with leeches and small midge patterns were the ticket. Fish were feeding heavily in the riffles which made for great sight fishing. As you approach the river, do so with stealth in mind. Walk slow and watch for fish sitting close to the bank in the softer water. A good pair of polarized glasses will help spot feeding fish. I really like the Bajio Nippers Sunglasses for spotting fish in all light conditions. Good luck out there!"
