Jun 01 Duranglers

Flows will be up to about 5000 around June 1st and hold until mid-June, when they will be dropped. This is all subject to change to watch the USGS gauges.
With flows rising, the character of the river can change. It can fish well at higher flows, and float fishing is a good option, while wade fishing is a bit more limited. Give us a call for up-to-date conditions.
Expect SJ worms to be awesome, plan on adjusting weight and depth.

Patterns/Bugs:
Annelids in 18-22. San Juan Worms, Egg patterns.
Midges 18-24: Black Flash Midge Pupa, Disco Midge, Tavs Big Mac, Bling Midge.
Foam Wing RS-2s 20-22, Flashback Pheasant Tails, and Rainbow Warriors 18-22.
