South Platte River, Colorado - Fishing Report -
March 23, 2019
Good conditions continue. The stream levels are running a little high in most
places but okay. Sculpin streamers are still catching the larger trout,,but keep
them slow, and near the bottom. Midges, creams and reds are working, but rig
them with the larva and pupa in tandem. We have them pre-rigged now.
7 Day Weather Forecast: There is a chance of rain/snow on Sunday,
otherwise clear for this coming week. Highs will range from 52 to 74 and lows
from 30 to 39 degrees.
Recommended Trout Flies:
Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin, size 6
Scuds, size 14 (some areas)
Black Matuka and Olive Matuka Sculpin, size 4/6
Midges: Blood (Red), sizes 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Cream, size 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Blue-winged Olives, size 20, 18 nymphs, emergers, duns and spinners
Little Brown Stoneflies, size 14, nymphs and adults
March Browns, size 12/14, numphs, emergers, duns and spinners
Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Our Brown and White Belly Sculpin are great flies to use at this time.
The Olive Matuka and Black Matuka sculpin streamers are good flies to use at this time.
Various species of Blue-winged Olives are hatching.
Scuds are available for the trout to eat year-round.
Winter stoneflies are hatching.
We still think the best strategy is to fish a tandem Midge rig under a small strike
indicator with the midge lava as the bottom fly and the midge pupa as the top fly. Fish
the adult midge only when you observe trout feeding on the surface.
March Browns are starting to hatch.
Little Brown stoneflies are hatching.
