San Juan River

Was at the San Juan yesterday for the first time, did a float trip from Texas Hole to Crusher Hole. That must be the standard route, as there is even a shuttle service to spot the guides’ vehicles and trailers downstream.
It is a tailwater fishery. Water was clear; I have never seen so many trout. They get fat on the abundant midge life coming out of the bottom draw of the dam.

It is bobber fishing over tiny nymphs. I had a “San Juan Slam” of rainbow, cutbow, and brown. Many hookups, many brought in, most of nice size. Guide Scott Warren of Durango CO.

    We’ve rafted the San Juan between Bluff and Mexican Hat. That part of the river is very scenic; petroglyphs on rocks right alongside the river, and a couple of very nice Anasazi ruins a overlooking a very short walk from the river.
