Animas Lunch Report – 4/26/17 – 2.0

It’s been a while for the ole Animas Lunch Report.  Well we are taking the ALR to the next level; call it 2.0, call it a vlog, call it a fishing report, call it whatever you want.  We will be bringing you the Animas Lunch Report weekly…in video format!

We are 21st century, man.

Ok…so maybe we need to get a little more 21st century and require a microphone.  Audio is rough, so you may need to pump up the volume.  This is are first installment though, so these well get better with time.

The quick and skinny is that weather came in yesterday, temps dropped, and so did the flows on most rivers.  Most everything is clearing, so go huck a streamer…well everything except the San Juan which is going up to 1000 cfs.  You could still go throw a streamer.

Pike fishing has also been fishing quite well lately at Navajo and has been picking up at Vallecito.

As always, make sure you check out our updated River Reports page for the most up to date information.

AND DON’T FORGET!  Tonight at 7 pm, our local 5 Rivers Trout Unlimited chapter meeting is going off:


Ever been humbled trying to fish the Animas River? You’re not the only one! Join us at our next Chapter Meeting on April 27th as Tom Knopick helps us to unlock its mysteries!

When: Thursday, April 27th: Program to start at 6:30. Come around 5:30 to catch up with friends and acquaintances and have dinner and a beer.

Where: Irish Embassy Pub, downstairs. Full bar and food service available and Happy Hour prices are honored from 4-7pm.

Program: Tom Knopick will provide his insights to help unlock the mysteries of our own Animas River. With close to 35 years of experience fishing the Animas, Tom will share some of the lessons he’s learned and break down the river by season, section, and bug. Veterans and newcomers alike are sure to take away a few pearls to help formulate an intelligent game plan the next time they hit the river.

Tom opened Duranglers in 1983 with his college friend John Flick. It was the San Juan region’s first full-service fly shop and guide service. Tom has also co-authored several books focused on fly fishing in Southwest Colorado.

Thank you and we hope to see you at our April meeting.
