Upper Madness

Had a guide trip today with some beginners on the upper. We ended up doing pretty well with San Juans, I tried to get fish on all kinds of bugs, but the worm was what they wanted. The water is still cranking through those side channles, so it's tough to get a good drift on a consistent basis, but when they got the job done, fish ate and ate well.
These guys are really fun, good attititudes, fish hard, and want to learn. It was good to see them get rewarded when they did it right. The drifts needed to be though the softy pockets next to the bank, which is tough in high water for an experienced angler. They did good. We go to Sitz Ranch tomorrow in search of some bigger fish and easier conditions.
