New Mexico Fishing Report for The San Juan River

Capt. Mark Nesbit
January 31, 2006
San Juan River - Freshwater Fishing Report

New Report

Hello everybody, Fishing report 1/31/06 The current San Juan River flow is close to 350cfs. The river is off-colored with visibility of about 6-20". The river is fishing good. The days are getting longer and warmer. The beatis hatch has been best on cloudy days. Midges early am, beatis late am, midges late afternoon most days. This year has not been good for our snow pack, the reason the water flow was decreased from 500 to 350. Think Snow! Spring fishing will be good. The rainbows are on the spawn.. Call Blue Sky Flyfishing Co. for more details and trip information. Tight Lines, Capt. Mark Nesbit
