The lower private water stretch of the San Juan is on fire right now. The crowds are up in the quality water and have left the lower alone since it got a little challenging the last few weeks. Thats all it needed, a little rest, and boom its back on! I was able to float my friend Wally, a 93 year old fishing machine down there today and it didn’t disappoint. Wally hooked into a beast the the top of Jacob’s and after a nearly five minute battle we landed an incredible two foot rainbow. I’ve had a lot of great times and memories with Wally over the years, and this one was special for both of us. I feel truly lucky to spend time with him, and am already looking forward to my Rock House amigos return in the spring.
