Colorado Stream Update: Winter conditions are moving in nicely

Current Conditions at Deckers:

The night temps are getting lower and lower! The Deckers area of the South Platte has been fishing consistently for the persistent angler. late Mornings and evenings have been decent, expect fish to take minute to get going with the cold. The fishery has seen a good amount of pressure at this point in the season, so a stealthy presentation is mandatory. Tippet sizes upwards of 5x are required to find the most eats. There are have been fish pulled from the surface with Griffiths gnats and tiny trico spinners, but a sensitive nymph-rig will find the most fish. Expect fish to be in slow holding areas, and deep runs/pools. Patterns like soft hackles, small caddis larva, and scuds are finding some nice fish lately. Midges are becoming more and more important - Black beauties, disco midges and top secrets are all great choices.

Winter fishing conditions are in effect  The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 44-47 degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Crystal Clear.
