Class Close-up: Fishing Cheesman Canyon

06/20/16 at 05:30 AM by Vince Puzick


Have you ever wanted to learn to fish Cheesman Canyon from a local expert?


Jon Easdon, one of our senior guides, will be teaching anglers the techniques and strategies for fishing Cheesman Canyon on Sunday, June 26th.


This section of the South Platte can be a very technical stretch, but it also offers some great rewards for taking on the challenge.  


Jon will go over specific methods and unique strategies to meet the challenges faced in this fishery: straight-line nymphing, hopper-dropper techniques, and dry fly fishing. He will also go over sight-fishing in the canyon.

Jon will also cover the local entomology and fly selection, seasonal strategies, and entry/exit locations into the Canyon.


This class will require participants to have previous fly fishing experience. This one is not a beginner’s class.  Anglers will also be hiking into the canyon, about 1.5 miles one way, and should be in good physical condition.


This class will meet at Angler’s Covey at 5:30 a.m. on June 26th. Following a short 30-minute classroom portion and an equipment and gear check, anglers will head to the Canyon, about an hour drive from the Shop.


This class will require a minimum of 3 students with a max of 5.  If it goes larger, Jon will bring a second expert.
