Still winter conditions check back towards the end of May
Big Cimarron: Below Silver Jack Reservoir
This area is still not open. There is better fishing on the tailwaters until next season.
Flow: 470 cfs
The East Portal is now closed for the season.
San Miguel River
Flow: 44.1 cfs
The in town stretch of the “Unc” is still fishing well. Traditional nymph/attractor nymph patterns and small streamers often work well here.
3-5wt rods with matching floating lines are a good fit.
The best fishing will likely happen with small midges. Don’t forget to bring an assortment of small leeches, scuds and san juan worms.
Use 9-10ft 5-6wt rods and reels with a good drag to handle the large fish in this stretch of the river.
