South Platte River - Cheeseman-Chatfield

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Blue Wing Olives are kicking off around 11-12 with steady numbers that bring fish to the surface. Midges are coming off at various points during the day depending on the weather.

For both, try fishing a dry and an emerger in the surface film or just below the surface.

Chuck and duck some big ol' ugly streamers!

Seven-day forecast 

Chilly weather with some snow is on the way. Traditional winter fishing is in full swing and will be through February. Fishing will be best on the warmer and sunny days during mid day. Look for midge hatches as well as the occasional BWO hatch.
