The flows at Deckers have been low but the fishing has been great, and the water is slowly on the rise. For the last week flows have been sitting around 50 c.f.s. and it is now at 101 c.f.s. Some baetis and caddis have been coming off through out the day, and midges are always a staple. Great fly patterns to fill your boxes with are Stalcup's Baetis, Graphic Caddis, San Juan Worms, Pat's Rubberlegs, Olive Sparkle Pupa, Bubbleback Midges, Black RS-2's size 22-26 and Bead Head Pheasant Tail nymphs size 18-22.
Dry fly fisherman should consider bringing some hoppers as well as tan Elk Hair Caddis size 18, Amy's Ants, Barr's Visaduns BWO in a size 18-22, and Griffiths Gnats size 22 or smaller.
Even with the rising flows bring your 6x fluorocarbon leaders and tippet, small split shot, and small indicators. A great way to fish would be a hopper/dropper rig with a red Amy's Ant and a Tungsten Bead Pheasant Tail as your dropper. Last week fish were mostly hanging in the deeper runs with a few stragglers in the shallow fast stuff, but with rising water really look for these trout to disperse. Focus your attention on the fast shallow riffles, and tight up against the bank where there is cover with your hopper rig.

To anyone who has come to our site the last couple of weeks looking for their daily fish porn fix or fishing report we apologize for the site being messed up. We use photobucket for our photos and links and apparently a free subscription only takes you so far when it comes to bandwidth. Thanks for supporting and following Colorado Fly Fishing Magazine! Tight Lines!

Hey everyone my friend and owner of Blindside Ski and Snowboard Jon Easdon is collecting water and supplies to take to Care and Share at his shop so if you want to show your support stop by. He is located on the corner of Highway 24 and 21st Street in the Roundhouse building. Also donating to Red Cross would be a great way to help! Here is the link to Red Cross.

Fellow trout bum Justin Herrera sent me a video he put together of his recent Spinney trip. Chironomids are everywhere, and the fishing looks like it's still fantastic. Thanks for sharing Justin!
