San Juan River - Freshwater Fishing Report
Fishing report 8/17/05
Hello everyone, the river flow is around is 475cfs. The water clarity is about 6-7 ft. Fishing has been good. There is still some moss in the waters above death row, but from there on down the river is pretty clean. The upper waters are having a midge hatch in the am. Some blue wing olives mid afternoon below the T-hole.
This year I can offer you a "package" with guiding and lodging and two meals, call for the |
best prices in the area.
