Great summer fishing on the San Juan. by Scott Taylor (7/25/2013)
The fishing continues to be very good. There have been a few days where some of the local waters were muddy, but we still found clear water on some of the different drainages that we are permitted in. Going up Trukey Creek tomorrow.
November Trout & Pike. by Scott Taylor (11/06/2012)
With mild temperatures and no snow in the high country, we are still having some great days fishing around Pagosa Spring. On the streams above 9,000 feet the best fishing time is around 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. The window for good fishing is getting smaller, but it is still a great way to enjoy the mountains
Fall Fishing in Pagosa Springs, CO by Scott Taylor (10/06/2012)
The seasons are changing! Snow in the high country (7 inches at Wolf Creek Ski Area), yellow aspens, red and orange oak brush. This is a great time to be in Pagosa Springs. The day time highs have been in the mid 70's with temps around 38 a night, making for some great sleeping weather. That is good news for the trout. The water temperature has dropped considerably from the highs around 72 degrees only 3 4 weeks ago, to between 50 60 degrees (depending on elevation).
August Fly Fising Report by Scott Taylor (8/13/2012)
It has been a very busy July and first part of August, after August 19th town will start to slow down with a lot of schools starting back up. Then there will be another bump with the start of hunting season in late August. The fishing continues to be good with water levels staying fishable and afternoon showers keeping the water temperatures down.
rains and cooler temps = BETTER FISHING by Scott Taylor (7/10/2012)
At Sunset Ranch the fishing has been great in between blown out days. Last week Jeff and I had a family out there with visibility in the 8 10 inch range. That can scare some anglers away, but we got into a bunch of fish. We were throwing some of Pop's special San Juan worms,
Summer fishing in the Rockies. by Scott Taylor (6/20/2012)
The Blanco, Turkey Creek, and numerous other small streams all have fish that want to eat dry flies. The fish have not been very selective; they just want a good drag free float.
Run off is over! by Scott Taylor (6/06/2012)
The guides were fishing lots more water during May, than a typical year. Low snowfall and an early melt, means that run off is over. While this may be good for fishing in May and early June, let's hope for a wet summer to keep the water levels in check come October, and not let Navajo Lake run too low.
April Trout Fishing & Getting Ready for Florida! by Scott Taylor (4/12/2012)
Today we went to Navajo Reservoir. It was snowing and blowing up to 20 mph at 8:00 am, but we had a plan, and stuck to it. Even with the tough weather, one of our main goals was to see how some of our new Tarpon flies were swimming.
Fly Fishing Pagosa Springs, CO by Scott Taylor (4/01/2012)
Last week's warm temperatures broke all the ice on the upper San Juan River and the flows went from 150 cfs to 850 cfs this morning. Run off is starting. As the lakes start to lose their ice, the fishing should be good on them.
Feb. 2 Fishing Report by Scott Taylor (2/02/2012)
Did 3 floats last week on the lower Juan, and fished a few hours on the town stretch. Below the dam the fishing has been very good on the warmer days. If you can hit the river when the temperatures are in the mid forties and higher the fishing should be good. With that said, currently it is in the 30's and snowing in Pagosa, I should be fishing instead of writing this report. I think it would be a good BWO afternoon!
Fly Fishing Pagosa Springs by Scott Taylor (1/25/2012)
I really like the improvements that were done on the Quality Waters of the San Juan River in NM! There were spots that I have only caught a few fish in the last 5 years, that were now loaded with fish.
