The Animas is fishing well right now. Winter is starting to give up to Spring and temps are warming. The river has been clear for the most part, the only thing making it dirty is the construction at the Santa Rita Whitewater Park. Hopefully the City of Durango will get it right this time and will stop wasting money on a new whitewater feature every year. Above Santa Rita is fine, the water is clear and there are lots of fish to be had. On warmer days they have been rising pretty consistently, my favorite fly has been a Purple Haze size 20. The nymphing has been good too, my best flies have been a beadhead pheasant tail and a disco midge. The river is fishing well and is the perfect escape for all of the doom and gloom surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak. We are still running trips during this time, the only changes we have made to our fishing program is to eliminate guide lunches. We are asking our guests to pack their own lunch to keep cross contamination to a minimum. We look forward to seeing you on the water!
