Re: Fishing the Pagosa Springs Area

Drive an hour and fish the San Juan quality waters, it might be crowded but it's red hot. You will catch some nice fish. A 17 inch fish is no big deal

Re: Things floating down river.

Not seen but heard, night float on the San Juan trying to hook into a big brown, the Beavers get about 10 feet from boat and slap their tail, sounds like a 12 gauge at night. Unnerving.

Re: Happy birthday USMC!

Semper Fi Marines. Just finished a book on Chosin Reservoir - 40 below zero and surrounded by 8 Chinese divisions. Only the Marines could have fought their way out. EPIC feat of arms.

Re: Required to fence or post private property?

My understanding in NM is that if the land or water is not posted legally the landowner can only ask you to leave and not come back. No ticket or any law enforcement action.

Re: Not good For Durango Colorado

This makes me sick too and I hate what happened but the Animas will recover. I think the high flows next spring will flush most of the heavy metals downstream. Superfund money is all but guaranteed...

Obama and Clinton send US troops to their deaths too. We don't need to get into all that on this forum.

Re: Appropriate? This getting 'old' has its limitations.

Deepest regrets. Fred you remind me of my grandfather. He was a Kansas farmer - salt of the earth. I would love to fish with you and hear your stories.

Re: So You Want to be a Fishing Guide

Why turn something you love into something you hate. I have had too many relatives/ friends in the boat that turned my day into misery. No thanks. Guides earn every dollar. Tip well.
