    San Juan River

    I am fishing the North Platte in WYO and going to meet a buddy down in NM on the San Juan to fish afterwards. I have no knowledge of this river, looking for hanging and fishing options from the group.

    Hey Swank..

    I've only been down the San Juan once on a guided trip so this is going to be based on memory.

    From the base of the dam to around 2 miles down river is a fishing area with restrictions.. I don't remember all the details other than no barbs. My guide service was completely catch and release, but I think the river allows 1 slot sized keeper in the restricted area, but I urge you to research that as I'm not 100%.

    I'm pretty sure there is a camping area at the tail end of the restricted area, just south of ET rock. I remember seeing someone set camp on the west side of the river in that area.

    When I went, fish were extremely finnicky on what they were eating (read up on the latest reports).. they were also hitting extremely light.. My guide must have had a 6th sense because he kept telling me to set the hook when I hadn't felt a thing. I had at least 100 bites but only landed a few myself.. my boat mate landed more but had less bites.

    Thanks for the info. I may be changing destination and staying CO. Going to post a thread on that in a moment.
