High Water Fishing Report

High Water Fishing Report

The river is now steady at 9500 cfs. The trout have been eating sowbugs aggressively. Fish a gray or tan Ray Charles, or any number of sowbug patterns. San Juan Worms in various colors have come on strong in the last few days. Midge pupa and Baetis nymphs are still working too. You need a boat to fish the river effectively now. Wade fishing spots are few and far between, but there are some selected holes where the fish are really stacked in there. You have to relearn the river when it’s high; fishing holes disappear and new ones appear. Keep in mind that the fish are almost always feeding, and if you fish with confidence, you’ll generally do well.
