May 19, 2012: 4-WD tour routes open a month early in Telluride
Strong fishing reports have rolled in from all around the region this week. In the south, the San Juan has enjoyed one of its best winters in many years. The State of New Mexico did some heavy streambed improvement above the Texas Hole, resulting in much improved structure for upper river wade fishermen. This has drawn crowds, but the San Juan always draws crowds. Check it out on a weekday! Nymphing has been more productive than dry fly fishing (no surprise, in the winter), with micro-sized midge and BWO patterns leading the way.
August 11 -- Wildflowers peaking in Telluride
A late spring and heavy July rains have produced an epic wildflower season in the mountains above Telluride. To the benefit of both 4-WD tours and photography tours, you'll never see the high country more beautiful than it is right now. Get up there! More than 20 species of flowers are in full bloom!
August 5 The longest rafting season since 1997 will end this morning as our paddlers make one final lap on the Specie Creek-Beaver Creek section of the San Miguel River. Thanks to everyone who joined us for some whitewater this summer!
Viva whitewater! Intermittent rains have sustained the San Miguel in the rafting zone through July. We are pleased to offer raft trips in August for the first time in fourteen years! Rain is in the forecast for the next week, so expect rafting to last through the first ten days of August. Grab a paddle and join us for a half day rafting trip on the San Miguel River!
