As we welcome June, we're excited to bring back an old favorite as a weekly feature - the Featured Trouts Guide Report! 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 (Deckers)
GUIDE: Brian Hilbert
LENGTH OF TRIP: Full Day Walk/Wade
"Very crowded morning but the weather had a lot of people heading home early. We gave it a full day and found fish consistently. Flows are very low which made the fishing a little challenging. Found fish piled up in the deeper runs but also caught several fish in the smallest of riffles. Found success using unweighted flies without a split shot and sight casting. Walk slow along the bank and you’ll find fish in very shallow feeding lanes. Top flies today were size 16 tan worms and size 20 Olive shot glass baetis."
San Juan Worm (Tan) #16
Shot Glass Baetis (Olive) #20
