Animas Lunch Report – 6/8/16 – Salmonflies

Durango Salmonfly

All over Southwest CO we are hearing reports of Salmonflies coming off: the Gunnison, Piedra, and now the Animas!

Perfect timing for a mass emergence of big bugs, right through peak flows…

Oh well, we have not actually seen too many on the Animas yet, and even though peak flows happened two days ago, the flows hit about 5300 cfs today.  It will all be coming down soon with clearing edges, so be prepared for a incredible summer!
