Spring 2014 Great Water Great Fishing

2013-08-07 04.22.40This year will be spectacular.  As of Mid April we are seeing 140% of average snow pack in the mountains.  The water is being released from Palisades Reservoir in anticipation of a solid run off from the mountains.  We are seeing slightly warmer than average temperatures and area creek are starting to run off.  This is good.

The upper South Fork is flowing at 9000 cfs today.  The water is clear but greens up mid canyon section.  Fishing has been excellent on steamers and nymphs.  The rainbows have begun spawning.  We are seeing large numbers of large fish on reds.  The heve been eating eggs very well.  Our guides have been bringing in many dozens of fish.  With higher water we are seeing all classic red areas produce.  We are looking forward to higher slightly off color water to practice our san juan worm fishing.  Our guides are zen masters at getting into fish during spring season.  Check us out on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for daily posts
