Anticipating heavy crowds at the Dream Stream this past weekend (which I can attest, were definitely there) Dave decided to head to the relatively crowdless Deckers stretch of the South Platte. Based off the weather we've had these past few weeks, the warming temps -both air and water- were bound to have the fish in a good mood. According to Dave, he focused primarily on the oxygenated, drop offs and shelves next to deep water. These areas were holding feeding fish that had moved out of the depths. He also had luck dredging a few deep holes and connecting with some very nice Brown Trout. I was happy to hear the reports of a deeper bite turning on and this should continue to improve weekly for the most part as the warmer temps are (hopefully) going to be the name of the game from here on out. Warmer daytime temps are one thing, but just as important if not more, are the night time temps. Pay attention to this when planning your outtings. After months of seeing night time temps ranging anywhere from the teens to single digits and lower, the sting of 30 degree nights forecasted for the next 10 days at Deckers is only going to help the fishing continue to improve. I expect a lot of good reports from customers. Additionally, Trouts Guide Service has several trips on the books to Deckers this week so plan on some more updates for this section of the river. As always, thanks for checking into the Blog and let us know how we can continue to help. According to Dave, countless other trout were landed, however in the interest of the fishes health, paired with the fumbling of getting the camera ready, keeping the fish wet and in the net, posing for the picture seveal times......sometimes it's still nice to just catch a fish, admire it for a few moments, and watch it slip out of your hands back to the depths.
