Low flows and lots of tubers will make fishing in town difficult at midday. Get out at dawn or dusk for some caddis or small stonefly dry action. Head up to the east or west forks throughout the day and fish attractor dries or dry/dropper combos!
Rain on the forecast may change all of this.

Its about time, but the flows on the San Juan have been bumped up to 500 CFS. It may take a day or two for fish to get used to the newly expanded habitat but this will make for better fishing in the long run. Midges, Baetis, annelids, and the standard small fare are still your go-to, but should we get rain over the next few days, have ants
