Featured Trouts Guide Report of the Week - 6/29 Edition

Ivan Orsic / Jun 29, 2020

It's Monday, which means it's time for the Featured Trouts Guide Report of the Week. If you've spent time on our website over the past couple of months, you might have noticed that we've added a "Guide Reports" tab to the navigation bar. HERE you'll find up-to-date Guide Reports from our professional fly fishing guides. Each report will detail the location, timing, hatch information, fly selection, and rigging.

Check out this recent report from Brian Hilbert. Stay tuned to our Guide Reports tab, as it will be updated on a very consistent basis as we continue to get clients out on the water.

LOCATION: South Platte River near Deckers

Half Day

"Deckers fished pretty good today. Lots of bug activity! Pale Morning Duns (or PMD’s) are starting to show up and were the focal point all morning. Size 18 Shot Glass Emergers in PMD Did most of the damage on nymph rigs. We also caught a few fish on leeches. At about 9:00am we saw quite a few PMD’s coming off and trout immediately keying in on them. A size 18 PMD Adams fooled several fish before the hatch tapered off. The river was quite crowded for a Thursday but still great fishing to be had. Good luck!"
