Default The Animas - Durango Advice.

I have a family function scheduled in Durango the first week of June. Does anybody have any local information on what bodies of water might be fishable at that time of the year. There is one member of my group that cannot walk far or on rugged terrain, but a gentle mile long hike might be doable. Would love to fish the Animas, but I fear that it will be too high.

The Animas will be blown out with spring run off during the first part of June. When I have fished down there in June I always fished the San Juan (tailwater). If you decide to fish the San Juan you might want to check out this site for up to date fishing information: San Juan River Fly Fishing

You might also want to give Duranlgers a call to see if there is anything else.

I fished the Deloris below the dam a few years back it was pretty nice---went with a guide from Duranglers.

The Animas right in the middle of town. Good access. Good fishing. Wadeable but be careful because there's some real deep spots and in June the run off will be high and the water fast. If you fish deep into the pools probaby better fishing.
