The Animas river is a tough river, but when you catch fish, they are good sized and energetic fish!  I have had some trouble catching fish during the summer months here on the river, due to the season's high water flows.  I thought taking a float boat would help give us some more luck.  However this was not the case.  

While we didn't hook any fish on the boat, we did have a great time.  Weston was in the kayak the entire time, and said he loved it!  It was fun, and sorta like a roller coaster.  
After the float trip was over, we still had some daylight, so we went to wade a spot we saw coming down on the float trip.  It looked good, but we didnt catch any.  Colin though hooked a decent fish, that started jumping like a tarpon.  It really was an amazing site to see.  
Overall we had a great time.  Even though there weren't any fish in the net, it was enjoyable just being on the water, and with some great company.  I think even Matt had a good time while floating us.  He was very skilled, and made for a fun day.
