Animas Lunch Report 3/26/15 – Kyle’s Hipster Lunch

This is what Kyle is having for lunch.  Seriously look at this thing, it’s like something you would find on Pinterest.  It even has kale.  It better be locally sourced, organically grown, humanely raised, and fair trade kale.  No this is not a stock photo, this is really Kyle’s lunch.  We drank coffee and talked about it.

Finally, The Animas Lunch Report

High Bridge Construction 3-26-15

High Bridge Construction 3-26-15

Well they still have the heavy machinery in the river at high bridge.  They are putting in a new water line and it is muddying up the river for sure.  There is still work at Smelter and Lightner is pushing some color.  All this to say that if you are gonna get out, fish dark nymphs and streamers.  This seems to be a mantra lately.  The actual river flows are leveling out for now around 524 cfs.  Keep an eye on the skies for BWOs.

Andy – Skipped the mess and fished the Animas upriver of Lightner.  Water clarity is really good…but they did not seem to want to eat swung streamers.  Look for deep holes and fish baetis nymphs.  The water is cold and I think the fish are sticking to the depths of slower holes.  I did see a few BWOs coming off though.
