Featured Trouts Guide Report of the Week - 8/17 Edition

Brandon Rodriguez / Aug 17, 2021

Each week we choose one report from our Guide Reports section of the Guide Report 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. This week's Guide Report is brought to you by Sam Kinney. Read below to hear about Sam Kinney and his recent full-day walk/wade trip on the classic South Platte River at Deckers. Deckers is definitely one of the most popular public water options along the Front Range. Deckers provides beautiful views and hungry fish. Stay tuned to our Guide Reports section of the website for more reports from various rivers as we continue to get clients out on some of our favorite water.

Another quality day down at Deckers. With cold water temps early in the AM, the fish are making us work a bit harder for them. That said, if you can find one usually there are a few more willing to eat close by. We saw sporadic Tricos around 10 AM but no fish looking up during this time. A small black RS2 was the ticket. The fishing picked up significantly in the afternoon with the top fly being a small Split Case PMD. Also took fish on San Juan’s, Olive Leeches, and small Pheasant Tails.
