Default Re: Headed to Durango in August

If memory serves me right, Kite lake is on stony pass north of silverton. I dont know of anyone having any luck on it, but the rio grande headwaters are right there and they are pretty good fishing. Mostly small fish and the water is more like a creek. I have never done it but you can drive to rio grande reservoir from there, I thinks it is around twenty miles from the top of the pass.

I have fished clear lake but its been a few years and it was on spinning gear, pretty good though quite a few little trout. My brother fished south mineral down the road from there last year and did farely well.

There are also molas and little molas lake, never fish them but they are right off the hiway and always have people fishing there so it must be OK. Andrew's lake is just north of DMR on coal bank pass and from there you can hike to crater lake. Both of these are on my to do list this fall.

The animas will be good by then.

Hope this is a little help
