SOUTH SAN JUAN WILDERNESS

We fished several creeks in the South San Juan, this creek by far was the most scenic and yielded the best fishing. The section of creek we fished required a bit of off trail navigation, well worth the extra effort! My guess is this creek gets minor pressure all year and most of it is in its lower sections.

A few pictures while fishing thought the day.








The water levels were a bit low on the creek, as is everywhere in Colorado! Nonetheless the water was cold an there was some great runs and pockets that held some nice Rio Grande cutthroat trout. Nothing to large but all were healthy and great fighters!







This creek was just planned as a day trip so we were not able to explore most of its water through the canyon. In the next coming years I hope to return an make this creek a backpacking destination!
