Sep 16 Telluride Angler

San Miguel (85 cfs below Placerville): We're enjoying terrific fall fishing on the San Miguel. Water temperatures are optimal, blue wings are hatching and fish still seam eager to eat attractor flies, both above and below the surface. Small attractors such as a size #16 Stimulator, Wulff or Parachute Adams will consistently fool fish through mid-October. The Chubby Chernobyl is the supreme point fly in a dry-dropper combination. Fish are still eating that thing up and down the San Miguel, including, surprisingly, on the low gradient Valley Floor. When fish won't rise, catch them on nymphs ranging from the Pat's Rubber Legs (following rain) to the Mayhem, Killer Mayfly and every version of a Pheasant Tail. Enjoy.
