These cooler days have finally caused water temps to drop and fish are starting to feed pretty good. 11 am-1 pm is showing nice hatch of BWOs along with the occasional caddis.
Full nymph rigs, or a dry/dropper has been a good way to fish the Animas lately. If fish are consistently eating on top, go dry with a smaller BWO or Midge.
