TRIP SUMMARY

Definitely a weird day at Deckers today. Got an early start and immediately got right into fish with nymphing rigs. Pat’s Rubber Legs and San Juan Worms produced several nice browns and one HUGE rainbow that broke off. At 9:00am we set up dry fly rigs for the trico hatch that never really came. The Trout were waiting in anticipation in the flats but never saw more than the occasional rise. We were however able to force several dry eats sight casting our imitations to trout sitting in the shallows. A black parachute Adams in size 20 was our best dry fly. We went back to nymphing which yielded a few more fish after lunch. Despite the Tricos not showing this morning the river still fished great. The South Platte at Deckers is definitely one of those trout streams that keeps you on your toes. Good luck out there!
