Posted & filed under Animas River.

The fishing on the Animas is very weather dependent right now. The early heat wave we experienced brought the water up pretty fast and dirty. It has cooled down lately and the river came down and cleared. Streamer fishing has been our go to lately, and we have been seeing some really nice meat...

Posted & filed under San Juan River.

The fishing on the San Juan has been pretty darn tough lately, but we've been working hard and managing to find some fish. My go to has been a black bunny leech, but yarn eggs and chamois leeches have also been successful attractor patterns. Best midge patterns have been red larva, cream pupa...
