The Animas is fishing really well right now. The leaves are falling and the browns are getting frisky. Cooler temps have brought out the BWO's and even some tiny tricos, as well as solid midge hatches. I haven't heard too many reports of risers, but the nymphing and streamer eat is on. Try standard...

The San Juan is looking beautiful right now with the golden cottonwoods lining the river. The fishing in the quality water has been a little tough lately, due to smart fish and quite a bit of moss coming down. The morning nymphing has been tricky, go to 6x and tiny flies (22-26) to fool these...

Posted & filed under Animas River.

The Animas has been fishing well, and flows are down to wadeable levels. The float fishing this year was super good, we managed to land some extremely large, mean, healthy trout. Streamer patterns were the way we fooled most of these brutes and they will still produce fish in the lower water but...

Pine River Fishing Report 3/28/16

Posted & filed under Pine River.

The Pine has been running a little low right now, but we're still managing to get into fish. They're spooky because of the low water, so long leaders and light tippets are a must. Be sneaky and wear drab clothing to avoid scaring the big one before you get a chance to cast to him! The plus side...
