Fly Fishing Report: Deckers and Cheesman Canyon October 4th

Fall fly fishing has finally arrived in Colorado!  With the recent rain event behind us, it is great to see a more regular weather pattern developing here in the Front Range.  The flows on the main stem of the South Platte River were all over the place in September - yet the river fished extremely well.  Flows were as low as 50 and as high as 300+ and the river has settled down to 154 out of Cheesman Reservoir through the Deckers area.  The water clarity right now is excellent and the fishing remains consistent.

Below is an update from the Division of Wildlife regarding the stream flows between Spinney and Eleven Mile Reservoir.  This is the Charlie Meyers State Wildlife Area (AKA "The Dream Stream").  At the time of this publication (10/4/13), this section of the South Platte River was running at 34.3 CFS well below historic averages.  To track real-time stream flow on this section of river CLICK HERE.


AURORA, Colo.-- Aurora Water has reduced the flow coming out of Spinney Mountain Reservoir, and the lower water levels will affect fishing in the South Platte River.

Brickhead Part II

QUINTANA ROO, Mexico - The year: 1982.  The month: March.  The day: Thursday, the 25th.

Over a year had passed and he still had not caught a permit.  What had started out a mild curiosity had blossomed into a distant fascination.  Permit were a magnetic enigma - their behavior vexing and alluring all at the same time.  From there, things morphed into what Isaha, his closest associate and now fishing partner, called an unhealthy obsession. 

“It es just a permit, jefe.  Your life will not change either way if you catch one or not,” said Isaha in the early morning as he poled a breezy flat under cloudy skies and poor light. Over the time they had worked and fished together, Isaha’s english had improved greatly.  He said the words with compassion, like a friend. 

He ignored Isaha and stared looking for nervous water - or maybe a sickled onyx tail.
