Our friends down at Duranglers in Durango, CO recently sent us a detailed summary of fishing conditions for the month of July.  Sounds like an ideal time to get down south and enjoy some great summer fishing, check out the report for yourself!

Durango July Fishing Report

June has come and gone and with it, a month of unreal fishing has passed.  Not to worry, July is the high point of our summer fishing season and it continues to be great in our small slice of fishing heaven.  As we wind down our Rio Grande float season and our guides head back over the hill towards Durango; we anticipate another fantastic month of great fly fishing.  Just to recap; John, Tom, and the boys spent the better part of June over in Creede, Colorado floating anglers down the Rio Grande River.  Thanks to the snow pack and temps this spring; the water flows remained constant, the bug hatches were unreal, and fishing was truly lights out for weeks on end.  Just check out this video John took of the Salmonfly hatch:

Trip Report - Fishing Cheesman Canyon at High Water

July 3, 2014
Author: Tucker Ladd

Being creatures of habit, it's understandable that anglers sometimes have a hard time adjusting to change.  We get used to seeing and fishing rivers during certain conditions, and when these conditions change it can be difficult to adjust how you're fishing to remain productive.  This scenario has proven particularly true this year with the abundance of water flowing through our States rivers and steams, all thanks to a record snowpack from the winter season.  This in turn has led to a lot of misinformed anglers speculating that fishing is slower than usual due to the higher flows.

The reality is that nothing could be further from the truth.  While it is true that during peak runoff fishing was stalled due to high and off color water, conditions have only been improving and the fishing has been lights out good on most of our states famed trout waters.  One section of water that has seen unseasonably high flows is Cheesman Canyon.  With flows ranging from 400 cfs to 1000 cfs, it is easy to understand why some folks have been put off by the higher water and have been seeking angling opportunities elsewhere.
