San Juan (Day Two)

Day two on the San Juan.  Going at it alone, somewhere between Abe’s Run and the Cable Hole.

Lot’s of anglers on the water, but still plenty of room to fish.  Trout everywhere.  Including a pet rainbow that is well over twenty inches sitting right behind my feet in the current break.  A monster.

Cool with a few clouds mixed in.  Midges. Tiny black ones all over the place.  A few risers.

Al’s Rat (size 22) is the ticket for me. I catch a few and break off several others.  Some are having no luck, so I’m thankful I’m catching a few.  A bit frustrated though as I think I should be catching more given the number of fish swimming around.

None of us though is matching the dude that looks like Richard Petty.  Replete with the trademark ‘stache and cowboy hat too!  Dude waded politely through everyone, found a rock along the fast/deep current, stood on it, and proceeded to put on an absolute clinic.  Mopped up with a couple of rainbows and browns, each of which were well over 20.”  Very impressive.  You could tell he’s done this before as he had it absolutely dialed in.  Crazy good.  The Trout Vacuum was there as well.  He and his clients were doing pretty well too!
