Fly Fishing Report: Today’s Fishing Report is from the “The Meadows” on the North Fork of the South Platte River. The Meadows fished absolutely lights out! The North Fork Meadows was in perfect condition with good summer flows from Roberts Tunnel and still plenty of water from Geneva Creek and the upper North Fork of the South Platte River. The morning started out with lots of sunshine and some excellent sight fishing opportunities. The fish were feeding heavily on nymphs with Wellsey’s Worm and the Midge Fly being the top bugs. Most of the fish caught in the morning were between 16” – 20” and a few bigger fish were lost. By the afternoon, the clouds rolled in and the green drakes started hatching. On today’s fly fishing trip we caught fish on all three methods using dries, nymphs and streamers. Fishing either a Colorado Green Drake or a Parachute Adams took the most fish off the surface. The biggest fish of the day was landed in the afternoon and it measured out at 24”. To book a guided fly fishing trip in Colorado and reserve your own piece of private water please Contact Us!
