Fishing Conditions

These cooler days have finally caused water temps to drop and fish are starting to feed pretty good.  11 am-1 pm is showing nice hatch of BWOs along with the occasional caddis.

Full nymph rigs, or a dry/dropper has been a good way to fish the Animas lately.  If fish are consistently eating on top, go dry with a smaller BWO or Midge.

Mayflies: BWO Vis-a-Dun 18-22, Parachute Adams 18-22,  Splitback BWO Nymph 18-22, Pheasant Tails 18-22, Olive and Red Micro Mayfly 16-20, Juan’s Slim Shady 20, Killer Mayfly Brown and Olive 18-20, Rainbow Warrior 18-20.
