While almost every river in the state is cranking with water, the S. Platte is cruising downhill about 100 CFS or so, not to intent on making it to the lawns of Denver. While this is a pretty decent flow, I'd take another hundred or so to get the fish really eating. But eating they are right now. Yesterday in 11-Mile Canyon on a guide trip, they were eating PMDs, Hoppers and just about anything else you wanted to trail. In the Deckers area, they are eating the same stuff. Funny how that happens. Here are a few photos from the past two days. Tomorrow is another day!
1st fish of the morning. Took the Royal Gourgous Caddis.
This was a sweet birdhouse perched atop of a big rock in the river.
Rockin' the Chubby! Sweet fly and nice fish. You should have seen the take. I was behind a rock and right in front of the rock, the fish rose slowly and took it. It was awesome!
Wonder why the took the chubby? These guys are out. Or at least one of them is out there somewhere.
The Colorado Caddis took it's share of fish also. I lost it to a stick. Dang stick!
The Golden iStone was the next batter up.
And it hit it out of the park!
Another great day in the Rockies. Like I said, there is only about 100 CFS coming downhill right now. Not bad considering what else is going on around the state.
