9 days on the Big Leagues

9 days on the Big Leagues

Hey all its been a great 9 days on the water and I’m excited to show you my rewards of hard work.  The cicada fishing is still going on but not smashing all day.  There were more private boats on the river this year pounding the shores than i have ever seen.  Which i think is a good thing more people are getting up here and enjoying the river.  It kinda effects the bite just because no runs are hot enough to run back to back with another boat, so timing and knowing were people have been is key to staying on a active bite.  Deep nymphing has been killer at the top of the river!  We have been wrecking the fish on San Juans and scuds.  Colors are too key to give away but i will say the bigger the better on fly size.  Moving down river the bite is still all about midges.  Back side of duck is loaded with fish, size is not strong but numbers are big.  Running a double midge setup size 16 trailed by a 18 was my best rig.  The best midge colors were your standard issue black and silver zebra, black and copper, and a dark laser.  All the back eddies are stacked with slurping fish that you can catch all day with a dry droper setup.  Most of those fish are small but the bottom of four on river left has nice schools of mature fish.  Those fish have been growing up in those eddies for two years, pretty cool watching them grow up.  With the Monsoons here it slowed the cicadas but if like last year the weather will warm back up and get a good ending hatch.  I hope you enjoy these pics and get up here.  The high water flow is only going to last tell the end of August, so that could put a stop to our big league drift.  This drift is by far my favorite run
