The flows are starting to decrease on the Animas and the water is looking really good. Wading will still be a bit of a challenge until flows are in the 600 cfs range. Fish are going to be tight to the banks after all of the high water. Try skittering caddis patterns in the evenings right against...

Try standard...

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...

The Animas is in full runoff mode now and fishing will be slow until flows drop. Try big black or flashy streamers tight to the banks or eddy lines. In the evening, toss a elk hair Caddis or stimulator along the edges of the banks. Twitching these dries downstream right up against the banks can...
