June Fishing

The San Juan River flow is now at 500cfs. Midge fishing has been good all day, green machine, black and red  as well as grey and red big mac, crystal flash midge in size 20-24 have all worked well throughout the day. Bateis patterns are starting to fish well chocolate and grey foam wings and juju bateis in size 20-24. Naked Red Ladies have been doing well throughout the day, size 20-24.  Darker colored midge patterns have been doing better than the light colors, i.e. olive, chocolate and rusty brown, red, etc. 

 

The Ant Fall occurred 6/17/18 and the fish were eating like crazy.  Dry fly fishing has been getting better, ant patterns have been occasionally catching fish before the ant fall happened, smaller sizes would do best. Caddis have begun to hatch on the Lower River.

 

Keep an eye out on the water to look for what is rising and floating around!
