Stream Report for February 13, 2006
Stream report for February 13, 2006
San Juan Flows are at 356 cfs below Navajo Dam;
The water is still off color but fishing well with leeches and streamers and red and black midge larvae, and brown baetis emergers. Dave is headed up there today and I’ll have a more accurate report tomorrow.
Rio Grande 247 cfs in the Wild and Scenic section and 470 cfs at Pilar;
Fishing for trout remained slow this week with water temps being too cold.
Pike fishing has slowed some and may be into a post spawn phase. Stripping large bunny flies in red/white has remained the best bet at hooking one .
Chama River below El Vado dam is at 242 cfs and 21 cfs below Abiquiu dam
Fishing remains slow below El Vado. Best reports are from anglers using big beadheads
in runs 4-6 feet deep. Fishing below Abiquiu dam has been slow with the water being low and clear and fish very spooky.
The Pecos is still very cold and has iced over in some places above the village of Pecos. We had a few more reports from Villanueva State Park. The fishing is fair, at least until the last fish gets harvested. It usually only fishes well after a stocking.
Jemez River at 17 cfs at Jemez Springs;
No reports lately but good places to try would be San Antonio below San Antonio hot springs and the East Fork upstream of Battleship Rock There has been a recent planting of fish on the main stem Jemez.
