About

The Animas River begins in Colorado and stretches 125 miles before joining the San Juan River in New Mexico.This river is classified as a Gold Medal trout stream. The rainbow and brown trout that inhabit this heavily fished river are abundant and can reach great size. This river is impacted by anglers from the late spring until early autumn. It has easy access and many public areas along its length.

Techniques & Tips

The magic of fishing a Gold Medal trout river is that almost anyone can catch a trout, from novice to veteran angler. Rainbows are aggressive and will hit dry flies during spring and summer hatches, wet flies during the cold winter months, and streamers, egg sacks, and nymphs most other times. Theyll hit bright blade spinners like Blue Fox, Mepps, and Panther Martin, and smaller spoons such as Five of Diamonds and Daredevils.Browns are more reclusive and wont strike as often on lures, but theyll gulp flies in season and theyre patient feeders on drifting nightcrawlers and minnows.
