San Juan Stopover


On the way back to Texas from fishing in Colorado in June, GRTU members O.C. Garza and Gordon Willard fished the San Juan River,  guided by Harry Lane, past GRTU board member who also guides on the Guadalupe. WHAT A DAY!! Harry taught me more about trout fishing in one day that I ever imagined possible.

            Gordon and I caught some huge rainbows on a double nymph rig using flies no larger than size 22. Most were size 26. Harry taught us how to set the hook and fight the fish to protect our light tippets and small flies. I highly recommend that anyone looking for a guide on either the San Juan or the Guadalupe use Harry. You will learn a lot.
