Deckers is a world-renowned stretch of the South Platte River. There are miles of public water to fish in and around the hamlet of Deckers.
Water Temperature: High 40’s
Hatches: Midges, blue-winged olives, and Tricos
14 Day Forecast: Look for hatches of midges, blue-winged olives and Tricos.
Tips and Other Information: Fishing has been fair to good in Deckers. The fishing has been slow in the morning, but picks up mid day when the Tricos come off. There has been some good dry fly fishing with Trico duns and spinners, then the fish key on sunken spinners. The hatch is over by 12:30, then the “olives” come off at 1 p.m. Overcast days are providing the best dry fly fishing. Its hard to go wrong with a size Parachute Adams, or Mathew’s Sparkle Dun of the BWO’s. Nymphing in-between hatches with Mercury Midges, Jujubaetis, Stalcup’s Baetis and chocolate Foam Wing Emergers is producing some nice fish as well.
