New Mexico Fishing Report for The San Juan River

Capt. Mark Nesbit
July 13, 2005
San Juan River - Freshwater Fishing Report

New Fishing Report 7/13/05

Hello everybody, the river flow as of today is 537cfs. The water clarity is about 4-5 ft. Fishing is good. There is still a fair amount of moss in the waters above death row, but from there on down the river is pretty clean. The upper waters are having a major gray midge hatch in the am. Some blue wing olives mid afternoon below the T-hole. The bait waters are on fire in evening with the goddard caddis hatch happening. Fish are gulping midge cluster patterns through out the river.

This year I can offer you a "package" with guiding and lodging and two meals, call for the |

best prices in the area.
