Deckers Fishing Report 6-29-13

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.
