I also heard reports of the river being hit pretty hard by the rains, bringing sediment down the canyon and filling in deep holes and covering the bottom of the river in some areas. This will likely have an impact on the food supply. Coupled with warm water temps and low flows, it's a tough year for the fish in Cheesman Canyon. Some shops, guides, and anglers are advocating for a voluntary fishing moratorium on the lower South Platte this summer.
