Middle Fork of the South Platte, Colorado Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
The Middle Fork continues to be a great place to spend a day on the water this month. With river work mucking up the Dream Stream and pushing anglers to the upper river, the Middle Fork is a great place to beat the crowds and still get a bend in the rod. Work with a deep set hopper dropper rig and keep an eye out for fish sipping tricos along the banks.
