Although temperatures are on the chilly side, the fly fishing for rainbows and browns has been very warm - hot at times.

We are catching nice trout from 14 to 21 inches using the traditional two-nymph rig so often used on the San Juan. In the morning try a pink egg (the brighter the better) above a midge pupa (size 24 or 26) in cream or red. Around 9 o'clock, switch your pupa out for a size 24 Johnny Flash in grey or a Scintilla midge in grey or brown, size 24.

You may begin seeing baetis mayflies around 11 o'clock. When you do, even if later in the day, switch to a double baetis rig. Use size 22 Fluff Baetis in brown and grey - one of each. Adjust your leader length and weight until you consistently get strikes. Many strikes have been super subtle. Set the hook anytime something looks different with your indicator's float.

We have also been catching some nice trout dead drifting black and brown wooly buggers in sizes 8 and 10.

Here's a great Christmas gift idea for that someone who is hard to by for, for yourself, or a whole fishing party: Rainbow Lodge is offering a Holiday promotion. Buy a gift certificate before Jan. 1, 2012 for any all-inclusive package or a guided fishing trip, and receive winter prices for a trip that can be scheduled for any time in 2012 - even next summer! See our website, www.sanjuanfishing.com, for contact info and prices. This is a HUGE savings!

What is the difference between fishing for bass and fishing for pike? I have fished bass for many years now and want to start fishing for pike as well. I have caught a pike or two while fishing for bass, and just wondering if I have to do anything differently to specifically fish for pike. Do they prefer deeper water? Bigger lures? Shiny lures?Do they bite in the morning, night?
