August fly fishing in Pagosa Country!

     We have had a lot of much needed rain lately. Some of the rivers and streams have been blown out, looking like dark chocolate milk, while others ended up a milky green. Luckily we have always been able to find some clear water. Sometimes it has been clear on the Upper Piedra or Turkey Creek, then other days they were muddy.

     Below the dam has been clear through all of this and the fishing has been great, with only minor changes in the flows, which have not affected the fish much. Last week we had some great dry fly action, most of the fish were taken on Dead Chickens or single midges. Two afternoons ago we had some mayfly action around Duranglers Corner with some Pale Evening Duns. At that time I had on a CDC Griffiths Nat, and they hammered it.

I got the Tarpon, but he still has some very cool ones left.

The fish were not big, but we found fish. Kevin wanted to fish Turkey Creek but it was blown out.
It never rained on us, but 2 hours later this steam turned to chocolate milk!
