Quote(s) of the Day: What a great day down on the South Platte River at Deckers!
I picked up Mark in downtown Denver on an early Monday morning to head to Deckers for a good morning of fishing. Mondays are always a good day due to less crowds and hopefully more eager fish! We were out on the river before 8 A.M. and the water was cold! We decided to cover a good amount of water and solely work with a nymph rig. Nymphing is always the number one way to go at Deckers and small flies are usually the ticket. After only being on the water for an hour we already hooked in to 3 fish! Mark's PB Trout on a fly rod made for some excitement to begin the day! We spent time sight fishing and found fish to be emerging in the water column as the day went on feeding heavy on Blue Wing Emergers. Landing lots of nice fish, we took off after lunch hour. Job well done, Mark! Great day with you my friend!

Partly Cloudy skies and 56-59 degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Crystal Clear. The fishing is great. With the lower flows, Caddis, Blue Wings and Stones will be the ticket!
