Downstream of Deckers on the South Platte

On July 10th , after a week of heavy rains in the area, flooding has washed away portions of Highway 67 between West Creek and Deckers. This may have created major setbacks for the fishery on the South Platte River downstream of Deckers. High sediment loads have likely produce fish kills and covered some of the invertebrate life in the streambed, which is a major food source for the trout. Upstream of the Deckers area have not been affected by the recent floods. We will monitor the situation and update with any current information obtained.

Fishing the Plate Cheesman Canyon.
I have been fishing the Canyon all winter long. Fishing has been good to excellant with catches of 6-12 fish days. I use almost exclusivly Dry Flies. Stay small or stay home is the rule in winter. I use a size 26-32 dry fly in grey or black. I have not seen any Blue Wing Olives as of yet. I am concerned by the amount of gravel that might be covering the bottom. Only time will tell how the floods will affect this fine fishery.
