South Platte River – 04/20/1996

Time: 12:30PM – 4:00PM

Location: Deckers area.

I fished just above Scraggy View picnic ground and landed 7 trout in total; 3 browns and 4 rainbows. One brown was fooled by a size 20 olive nymph, and the other two browns gulped a tan San Juan worm. Two of the rainbows were caught on a tan San Juan worm and the remaining two grabbed an orange scud. It was an overcast cool day with a high in the upper 50’s.

Fish Landed: 7

South Platte River – 04/05/1996

Time: 11:00AM – 4:00PM

Location: Deckers area.

I fished the bend above Trumbull on a nice day with the temperature reaching the upper 50’s. I caught one brown on an orange scud by a large rock outcropping on left side of stream. A very sparse hatch of blue wing olives occurred, but it only brought up a few rises.

Fish Landed: 1
