Trouts Guide Service Report: Early April

Ivan Orsic / Apr 7, 2015

Last week was a busy one for Trouts Guide Service and thankfully, a bunch of fish had their feed bags on. Both myself and Scott Dickson had trips out the door and the fishing was very consistent pretty much from start to finish every day. The weather was pretty wild last week and we experienced everything from days requiring long underwear and multiple layers, to wondering when it was time to ditch the waders and start wet wading. The key almost every day though seemed to be the Baetis hatch. This is definitely when we saw the highest/most frequent amount of hook ups. These little guys have been getting active to some degree every day so keep an eye out for this hatch. Eggs and midges also produced their fair share of nice fish as well. The fish are starting to spread out more and more by the week so don't be afraid to get out and explore a little. The deep, green holes/buckets are still producing fish, however we're also catching them in almost every other type of water you can find- riffles, shelves, tailouts- they're all holding fish to some extent. These fish that have leave the safety of the deep are almost always the easiest to catch as well. Keep an eye out for noses breaking the surface as well. We've been able to catch a few on dries almost every day as well! Even though the flows are low, the South Platte is fishing well right now and should continue to for the time being. Get out there and make it happen. Or better yet, give us a call to book your very own guided fly fishing adventure!

Flows: ~67cfs

Flies used: egg patterns, brown san juan worms, black/gray rs2's, red/black pure midges, wd50's, jujumidges, juju baetis (all colors), barrs bwo emerger, micro-mayfly, nonbead pheasant tails, rainbow warriors, parachute adams, film critics.
