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.
14 Day Forecast: Look for hatches of midges, sporadic blue-winged olives and caddis.
Tips and Other Information: Flows were bumped to 155 a few days ago, so expect the caddis hatch to slow a bit due to colder water temps. Anglers should expect to see hatches of midges, sporadic blue-winged olives and caddis. Flies of choice have been scuds, Baetis nymphs, and caddis pupae. Flows will remain low until Cheesman Reservoir fills. Currently the lake is about 11 feet from the top, so it shouldn’t take too long.
