San Juan currently is in excellent shape at 1000cfs with avg. 700. It being a tail water it should hold up okay into the fall without the rains. However with this hot dry weather the past two years all bets are off. I'll be making my reservations soon for the San Juan in late Oct. into November. Freebird you will be there for one of the best months of the year; as if any month on the San Juan is not tops.
