With water levels fairly high in many of the popular rivers across the State of Colorado, the South Platte River drainage continues to be a solid go-to option. The stream flow at Deckers was 91 CFS on June 1st and the water was clear – conditions were sunny with temperatures in the 60s.

June in Colorado means prime time fly fishing season is upon us. Trouts Fly Fishing has put together a killer schedule of customer events and educational classes – all designed to help you fish more effectively and have fun on the water. Without further ado, here is the June line up. We hope to see you here in the shop, out in the park for the “303 Shootout”, or out on the water.
Trouts is trying to help out a customer who is looking to sell a 50% share and ownership of a NRS E 136 raft and fishing frame. Make the jump to see how the raft and ownership opportunity is being advertised and also how to get in touch with the owner if you are interested.

Sign up today because we keep this On-Stream Beginner Fly Fishing School SMALL and seats are going FAST. Fishing this section of the North Fork of the South Platte River should be great in mid June.
