Sunny Days on the San Juan River

September 18, 2016

This week was a sunny week on the San Juan River. There was a brief moment when rain fell, but it was fleeting. Anglers have been catching large, healthy trout at 20 inches and above on the San Juan River. The fishing pressure has been heavy. The midges are minuscule, size 24 or 26, black or gray. Weight them lightly with a 8/0 or 9/0 and dead drift them over the sandy spots. Leeches with a foam wing dropper in chocolate or olive have been working best. A dead drift with a strip back at the end of the drift will hook up a few more fish.

As always come and have lunch or dinner with us at Fisheads. Our guides will take you on a float trip down the river to fish the Juan. #fishthejuan #fisheads
