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.
