The flows have been dropped pretty low to match the higher flows of the Animas. Wade fishing has been good with afternoon hatches of midges and a few baetis.
With lower flows, sight fishing has been good. Walk the banks and look for target fish, or find a pod of risers in the afternoon.
It also may be worth your time to try out an ant dry as well.

Midges 22-26: Black Flash Midge Pupa, Sidewinder Midge Pupa, Tavs Big Mac, CDC Midge Dry, Bunny Midge Dry, Sproat Midge. Parachute Adams in 18-26.
