Fishing Tips for San Miguel River

on December 8th

A small, fast little river the San Miguel is still recovering from mining damages but the fishery is decent with medium size rainbow, brown, and cutthroat plentiful in the pocket water and it keeps getting better all the time. You can float the river with a whitewater kayak but your best bet is probably wading. As you are working your way down the river pay special attention to the inlets of some of the feeder creeks, some of them have fishing that is every bit as good if not a little better than the main river. Good Luck!
