The recent flow bump should help fishing dramatically along side more consistent hatches. Things have been a bit slower on this section, that being said...our guides have found some nice fish. With Caddis, PMDs, Yellow Sallies and potentially early Tricos starting up...and perhaps more fish in the system with more water, we expect for fishing to ramp up. Stay tuned.
Flowrate above Elevenmile Reservoir: 135 cfs
In the early Summer all of the South Platte sections mimic each other. There can be alot of different bugs on scene, so make sure you're prepared accordingly. Hatches will focus on Caddis, BWOs, Midges, PMDs and maybe a few Tricos. Also in the mix are Terrestrials. Be ready to throw technical nymph rigs focused on the hatch lifecycles and if you're lucky you'll find yourself throwing a dry in the midst of a solid hatch.
