Favorite Western Tailwater?
 
What is your favorite tailwater fishery in the Western United States?

Well jeez ... I've only fished two of those on the list. So I chose Green River as a default. Fish didn't bite much those couple of days, but the landscape was phenomenal.

I voted the San Juan, but I like the Frying Pan also.

I voted for the San Juan, I really like the scenary there and the fact that you can get out of the boat and wade fish. The Frying Pan is very good but you have the same issues with private land that you do on the Grey Reef section of the North Platte. I haven't fished the Green below Flaming Gorge yet, but that is on my list to do this summer.

Personally, of the rivers listed, I've only fished the San Juan and the Snake River in Wyoming, so I don't think I should vote without sampling some of these other classic Western trout rivers. I will say that the San Juan has extremely heavy fishing pressure, which detracts a lot from its desirability to me.

I have only fished 2 of those as well, but my favorite western tailwater is the ruby.
