By: Jun 10, 2014 | Author: Tucker Ladd
The first time I ever tried to hit a salmonfly hatch was on the banks of the Deschutes River in central Oregon.  I did my planning, my research, and lined everything up with a buddy who lived in Portland.   After a three hour flight and a 2 ½ hour car ride we arrived on the Big-D and immediately found giant salmonflies in the grass, willows and Russian olives.  They were seemingly everywhere.  Then, without ceremony, my buddy grabbed a bug and chucked it into...

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout.

Fly Fishing For Carp: Stillwater Edition

By: Jun 09, 2014 | Author: Tucker Ladd
When flows are high, it is a great time to explore stillwater fisheries.  Close to home here in Denver we are pretty lucky and have a number of close by lakes, reservoirs, and smaller ponds.  In addition to a wide variety of species like pike, small and largemouth bass, and wipers, many of these fisheries are chock full of carp.   The most prevalent species is the common carp but you will also find mirror and grass carp as well.  Two weeks ago we talked a bit about fly...

South Platte Fly Fishing Report: June

By: Jun 05, 2014 | Author: Tucker Ladd
Fishing the South Platte River over the past week and a half has been dynamic.  This past Saturday, we saw a significant increase in flows during our On-Stream Beginner Fly Fishing School.  The river was high when we arrived and we saw it increase throughout the day. The flows near Deckers actually quadrupled over a 24-hour period.  Even with rising water levels, the fishing was still good. During our class we stressed that weight with our students. Using weight to ensure your...
