Heavy runoff is over and flows are tapering off as Spinney Reservoir nears full capacity. Conditions will come a lot closer to matching the downstream tailwater sections. In the ranch section look for fish to be on small terrestrials, tricos and midges.

Its been a small bug game on all sections of the South Platte going into early summer. You'll do best to be prepared with the full lifecycle of the Trico, Midge and BWO. 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. Be prepared with Caddis, Yellow Sallies and other sundry early summer bugs as we enter that season.
