Local Water

San Juan River

The headwaters of the San Juan River are a hop, skip, and a jump from our fly shop 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. Whether you would like to fish downtown close to your hotel or fish some of our exclusive privately leased water we will ensure that you have plenty of opportunities to hook that 'big hog' on the San Juan!  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 River

The Rio Grande River 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 all the way to Del Norte - over 40 miles of river, plus dozens of other small creeks which dump into this mighty river.  Call to book a float with one of our fantastic guides today at (719) 873-1414!

South Fork and the upper Rio Grande valley has dozens of small creeks and over 80 fishable lakes!  From reservoirs stocked with catchable rainbow trout, to small streams filled with beautiful native Rio Grande cutthroat trout - there is surely a lake or stream nearby to satisfy your need.   Although we do not provide guiding services on any of the nearby lakes and small streams, our 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!
