Re: San Juan in August

Actually, they are only illegal in the Special Trout Water; from the dam downstream 3.5 miles to Crusher Hole. Downstream of Crusher Hole, in the bait water, they'd be OK.

Also, be aware that the...

Re: San Juan in August

The Pumphouse area that I know is around the named parking area downstream of Cottonwood Campground. There are a lot of pumps in the area but that one has the name, as far as I know.

Re: San Juan in August

Forgot to mention, since you've last been there they did some improvements to a couple of sections of river. They scoured out some holes and created some rock structures in the Braids and below Simon...

Re: San Juan in August

The water is down for this time of year but it's not too low. The places that are too thin are the estuaries below T-Hole. I fished from T-Hole up two weeks ago and it's fine. The only issue I saw...

Re: Ever hit a deer/large animal while driving?

Yep, November 21st, 2014. T-boned a 500+ lb bull elk while I was travelling 70 mph on US 550 in New Mexico. Thank you Toyota.

Re: Sling Pack Recommendations

I'm a leftie and I use the Orvis Guide sling and it works perfectly as it's designed. Once the bag is swung onto my back it's out of the way and doesn't bother me at all. I've tried on a Patagonia...

Re: compact camera?

I've had a Pentax Optio WG-3GPS for the last year and it's been a great camera with a lot of nice features. I had an Optio W90 for about five years before that but I dropped it in deep murky water....

Re: A wintery Spring day on the VCNP

I was using my 8' 9", 3wt Circa so, yeah, there were angles I just didn't try to cast. Fortunately there's enough river that I could give up sections to keep the wind at my back :).

A wintery Spring day on the VCNP

I discovered that the Valles Caldera Nation Preserve has opened up weekend fishing for the East Fork of the Jemez. They haven't put this on their available dates web page, it's strictly walk-in and...

Re: Prescription sunglasses

My current pair and my previous pair are/were Rayban frames. They've been rugged, lightweight, and worked well.

I prefer gray tint on mine. I like a darker feel than amber gives me.

Re: Rods as 'Works of Art'

I don't thinks it's strange at all. A local here keeps showing me the stuff he's doing with inlays in the grip and reel seat. It's gorgeous. I would love to have some of his work. But a rod is a tool...

Re: Pecos National Historical Park - Santa Fe

I fished the park Friday and had a very nice, if tough, day. I didn't catch many fish but the river looks good after the flooding, there's lots of clear gravel and cobble and I saw a couple of redds...

Re: Pecos National Historical Park - Santa Fe

The VCNP hasn't opened it's fishing program yet this year. The East Fork of the Jemez probably won't open up until late May because they are planning a prescribed burn across the Valle Grande (big...

Re: Pecos National Historical Park - Santa Fe

I'll drop a note here and let you know how it goes.. Right now the flows are just below 160 cfs. The park closes fishing at 200 cfs (half flood stage) so it looks like I'll sneak in under the wire...

Re: What is in you vest/pack?

If I dumped out my sling bag we'd find, including things hung on the exterior:

1 stack of tippet spools
5 leaders
1 nipper
1 hemostat
1 thermometer
1 analog compass
1 partial roll of toilet...

Re: Pecos National Historical Park - Santa Fe

So, here's what I know now after some digging ;). When Mr. Fogelson died the ranch was divided into two sections. The north section went to Mrs. Fogelson (Greer Garson) and the south section went to...

Re: Pecos National Historical Park - Santa Fe

Actually, the PNHP includes the Forked Lightning Ranch and it's the Pecos on that ranch that is made available. One of the reason I like fishing it is that the entire area reeks of history :).

Re: Pecos National Historical Park - Santa Fe

I'm on the park this Friday and looking forward to it very much. The park was closed to fishing all last year because of flooding due to the Tres Lagunas Fire and I missed fishing that water.

I think you made a good choice. I've been fishing my 590 One for almost four years now and I still love it. I started it out with Rio Grande and didn't like it and have been using Rio Gold since....

Re: Spawners

Imho, leave the active spawners alone. Avoid wading on the redds. Fishing the hole below a spawning bed is OK.

I have a Butter Stick that I use on a specific set of willow congested creeks. I've researched the Superfine Glass but I don't think it gives me anything that I want that the BS doesn't.
