The San Juan River Quality Waters below Navajo Dam are OPEN!! With so much time off, the trout started acting spooky to anglers (like wild fish) but they will get used to it. Standard Juan fare such as Annelids, midges, BWOs, Leechs, worms, scuds, and eggs are in order. Try out a streamer for giant browns lurking in the depths.

Patterns/Bugs:
Midges 18-24: Black Midge Pupa, Sidewinder Midge Pupa, Tavs Big Mac.
BWOs: BWO Film Critic 20-22, Juans Sniper Baetis 20-24, Smoke Jumper Baetis 20-22, Baetis Comparadun 20-22.
San Juan Worms: Red, Wine, Orange. Red and Orange Annelids. Egg Patterns.
Trout Parr, Buggers, Dirty Hippy, Sheila Sculpin are all good streamers to throw too.
