San Juan River Report and Some Other News

Rainbow trout san juan river  nymphing

A nice Rainbow caught close to Navajo Dam

The San Juan was fishing excellent as usual on Saturday. I Continue to notice more people dry fly fishing, which used to be my diversion from the crowds on the Juan. On the other side, I myself have been trying my hand out at nymphing for a change. People will tell you all kinds of things about nymphing and technique, but my experience has been that it doesn’t matter what setup you use if you don’t have the right pattern. Finding the right pattern doesn’t mean picking up a few small fish here and there; it means consistently hooking large, intelligent fish. I’m starting to feel like I am getting my feet back on the ground with this one. Every river is different though and tomorrow will be a frustrating day on the Animas river. The agenda for monday is xc-ski/skijorn with my dog, long distance .22 LR handgun target shooting, finish making mozzarella, and nymph fish the Animas River Golden Water Section. Just thinking about it makes me want to go to sleep, so I’ll make this entry short and end it with a photo and some news.
