Colorado Stream Update: Banner half day on Deckers.

Current Conditions at Deckers:

With some improvement in the weather, the fish have responded. Nothing crazy happening on the surface, but the fish were certainly on the feed. Odds were pretty high that if you could see a fish, it was likely that he would eat. Water is high, but the fish were stacked on the edges and in the pockets.

Not too terribly crowded on the river today. We are catching some larger than average rainbows and lots of smaller browns. Better bring a big net!  The fishing is great.  Partly Cloudy skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 48-51 degrees and Slightly Off.
