This is something new we are trying to add to the forum, so if you have a hatch chart of your favorite water in the Rocky Mountain Region please add it or let me know and I can add it in. Thanks!

A trio of home-spun hatch charts for those that fish the "three rivers" area of Almont, Colorado...

Where did you find the charts you posted or does home-spun mean you put them together yourself? I'm trying to find something more detailed, like the ones you posted, for South Platte/Eleven-mile.

This is my own work. I developed master charts for east and west in Excel and then cut down/tweak as necessary based on information I glean from fly shop sites, published hatch charts, and macroinvertebrate studies... the latter being the most reliable source of information by far. I continue to whittle away at them based on personal experience (fly fishing and seining).

I usually only go this length for rivers that I fish somewhat regularly. A lot of secondary hatches get over-looked on published charts, or they lump together caddisflies as "various kinds" (yeah, that's helpful). I get to Almont, CO once or twice annually so I've been chipping away at these three for a couple years now.

I'm really surprised the South Platte doesn't have quality charts readily available being such a high profile fishery.

There might be some better charts out there but the ones I have found in cursory searches all have like 5 options of "various kinds". As you said, not very helpful. I'll keep digging as somebody has to have a better chart out there.

Still, great looking chart.
