San Juan River

The headwaters of the San Juan River are a hop, skip, and a jump from our fly shop in South Fork, just on the other side of Wolf Creek Pass.  Along with some of the prettiest scenery our great state has to offer, this freestone river comes with prolific hatches of stoneflies, caddis, mayflies, etc.  The San Juan is a wading anglers dream come true, but can also be very effectively fished from a boat when flows are ideal!  Public access on the upper San Juan can be rather spotty in certain stretches, but most people tend to focus on the stretches in and around the town of Pagosa Springs.  Call now to reserve your chance to fish the San Juan with one of our awesome guides at (719) 873-1414!

Rio Grande

The Rio Grande is located right out the door of our fly shop here in South Fork, Colorado.  As one of the longest stretches of gold medal waters in the state, this great river has excellent hatches and is an angler's delight to float.  The Rio is also wadable during lower flows and in the upper stretches too.  There is ample public access along the river from west of Creede, around South Fork, and all the way downstream to Del Norte - over 40 miles of fishable waters, plus dozens of small creeks and tributaries which dump into this mighty river.  It's no wonder the locals say that you can easily spend an entire lifetime (and then some) fishing all the different waters in the Upper Rio Grande!  Call to book a float with one of our fantastic guides today at (719) 873-1414!

Local Stillwaters & Small Streams

At Wolf Creek Anglers, we are blessed to fly fish the headwaters of some of the most pivotal rivers in the American southwest.  While these rivers look dramatically different downstream in other states; in Colorado, their headwaters provide some of the prettiest scenery our great state has to offer, plus many outstanding fly fishing opportunities.  South Fork and the upper Rio Grande has dozens of small creeks and over 80 fishable lakes, right in our backyard!  From reservoirs stocked with catchable rainbow trout, to small streams filled with beautiful, wild and native Rio Grande cutthroat trout - there is surely a lake or stream nearby for you.  On the west side of Wolf Creek Pass, the mighty San Juan begins modestly at its two main tributaries - the East and West Forks - which absorb(s) many tributaries above and below the town of Pagosa Springs.  These streams and stillwaters in the upper Juan contain rainbows, browns, brookies, and the equally-beautiful Colorado River cutthroat trout.  Although currently we do not provide guiding services on any of the nearby lakes and small streams (yet - wait for news on this soon!), our shop and guides are more than happy to point you in the right direction and provide you with the flies you'll need.  Stop by our shop or call at (719) 873-1414 if you want more info about these waters!
