Fished Cheesman on Thursday. Flows where down (about 160) and water was as clear as it could possibly be. Fish where easily visible, but they where very spooky. They were still hanging out in the slower runs primarily.

A grey RS2 was the only thing that really worked for me, mainly in the am.

Good luck.

Cheesman Reservoir closed for 2011 :(

March 14, 2011 - Cheesman Reservoir will be closed to visitors this year, as Denver Water completes essential upgrades to the dam, which was built in 1905. Upper and lower Gill Trail will remain open to hikers who want to access Cheesman Canyon throughout the closure period.

The reservoir has been closed to visitors since Jan. 1, 2010, during the first phase of the project, in which crews completed upgrades to valves inside the dam. Though the utility had planned to open the reservoir this spring, the amount of heavy equipment, site logistics and security needs for the second phase of valve upgrades necessitated a prolonged closure. Cheesman will reopen to visitors May 1, 2012.

“Completing this project is vital to maintaining dam safety, providing a viable water supply and ensuring smooth operations,” said Tom Roode, assistant chief of engineering. “Cheesman is more than 100 years old, and the underwater valves we are replacing were installed in 1905 and the late 1920s. We look forward to opening the reservoir to recreationists next year.”

Well you said what the flows were, and you said a fly as bait. Sooooo, I knew where you were talking about. Pretty basic really. Good job making an effort to get out and catch fish.

Ya, I thought it was pretty self explanatory, but I guess not for others.
