Wade Trip or Float Trip?

Fly fishing the San Juan River can be an exciting experience, and whether you choose to use a drift boat or wade fishing depends on your preferences and the conditions of the river. Here are some considerations for both options:

Drift Boat Fishing

  1. Accessibility: Drift boats provide access to a larger stretch of the river, allowing you to cover more water in a day.

  2. Comfort: They offer a comfortable and stable platform, making it easier to cast and fish for extended periods.

  3. Guided Trips: Many anglers opt for guided drift boat trips, where experienced guides can navigate the river and provide valuable insights.

  4. Great for beginners and mobility imparied individuals

  5. May be better option during high water or water with low visibility. 

Wade Fishing

  1. Precision: Wade fishing allows for more precise control over your position, making it easier to target specific areas where fish are holding.

  2. Stealth: On-foot anglers can often approach fish more quietly, which can be beneficial in clear waters where fish may be easily spooked.

  3. What you'll probably do when you don't have a guide! You should get used to wade fishing if you're trying to learn!

  4. Access to Different Areas: Wading allows anglers to access areas that might be difficult or impossible to reach by boat, such as side channels, shallow flats, the upper half mile of the river!
