John, I thought that you might be interested in an update. Hit the Platte on saturday and Willow bend was all ashed out. We did not catch or see any fish. Upstream at Deckers it was not a whole lot better. Finally around noon we hiked into Cheesman Canyon and found both clear water and fish. Hooked up right away on a black suspender midge, biggest fish of the day. Then it was a mix of midge stuff, tiny 24-26, and size 18 orange scuds. I found that the fish are not paired up yet and they are not in the faster runs either. All fish were taken in pools. I imagine that the Big T will be much the same. I'm off to WY this weekend so we'll share reports later.
