Sep 23 Royal Gorge Anglers

General Overview

The strong flowrate has helped fishing dramatically along side more consistent hatches. With strong Trico hatch activity and consistent Midge lifecycle activity...fishing will continue to be very solid. Alot of pressure on this section so be ready for technical fishing.

Stream Conditions

Flowrate near Lake George: 120 CFS

Clarity: Clear

Suggested Methods

Its going to turn into a small bug game on all sections of the South Platte in the Fall. You'll do best to be prepared with the full lifecycle of the Trico, Midge and Fall BWO (Pseudocleon Baetis). Nymphing will be your staple but if there are enough bugs on the water it will be key to tune in to the surface and film with your key emergers, duns and spinners.
