  1. One of the best days I have ever had fishing! It was unique fishing, and definitely something I want to go do again. Who knew this small creek would have fish in it, but there they were. And tons of them as well! The water was crystal clear, so I was also able to get more underwater footage, and quality underwater footage than I have ever been able to in the past. It seemed like every fish got to swim away on camera. So the moral of the story is, if you see a trickle of a creek, and think to yourself that its not worth exploring because it could not hold fish in it, maybe give it a 2nd thought. It might be one of the more unique experiences you have ever had fishing! So as always, with these small secretive creeks, I will not be able to tell you the actual location or creek name, however I can say that it is located somewhere in the south west tip of Colorado, located in the San Juan Forest which is in the lower stretch of the Rocky Mountains. Its beautiful here, and densely forested. Its also very remote and you will rarely see anyone while out exploring. But this means you should be careful! Always go with someone else, and bring a small first aid kit incase something does happen.
  2. I have said many times that the San Juan River is not a dry fly river. And for the most part this is true. I mean you can catch fish on the dry, but usually you have better luck nymphing. However there are times that this is reversed like this time. Usually its when the sky is overcast, and occasionally with light rain, you will get some epic hatches. I mean, there is always midges out and about, but not too many larger fish are going to spend the effort to move to a single tiny midge. However when small BWO hatches happen, or the midge hatch is so thick there are clusters of them on the surface, the fish will start coming to the surface. When you see this, you might have one of the best times of your life fishing! Throw on a small dry fly and have at it. A better combo than I had on this trip would have been a Griffiths knat dropped to the small matts midge. The matts midge is a great imitator of a single midge, and the Griffiths imitates clusters off midges. It would be nearly impossible to see the single matts midge though with a cast further than a couple feet, so the Griffiths or some other indicator type fly is needed.
  3. So while I cannot name the creek, I will say that this is my new favorite place! However its a little more crowded than the other small creeks i've been to, It had bigger fish, amazing scenery, and fish very willing to eat my dry flies. Just absolutely amazing fishing! I went the day before they closed down the San Juan National Forest. Because of such a dry season, and little moisture, we have had some bad fires in and around Durango. They have been devastating. So the authorities closed down the national forest, and I had to get out and hit some small creeks before I couldn't anymore. Luckily I had an amazing trip, and caught quite few fish! And I could not have asked for a more beautiful place to be!
  4. Brookies brookies every where! Man, that 2nd creek I hit up was amazing wasnt it? If I went there first, I have a feeling I could have gone further, and gotten some more fish. I hear there are some larger brown trout up further in that creek, and the brooks seemed to get larger the further up I went also. These were beautiful little fish, and ones that pulled quite well on that small 2wt rod.
  5. I take a large number of trout on this pattern I tie. Tiemco 100 size 12 - 16 Furled antron tail into body/post 1 ginger hackle 1 cream hackle
