Categories: ,


A self-proclaimed “creek freak,” I love to fish the high mountain backcountry. So we’ve forged a relationship with outfitter “The San Juan Angler” in Durango, CO that will let me share with you the beauty and the amazing fishing to be had in the San Juan Mountains of Southwestern Colorado. We’ll be targeting native Colorado Cutthroat & Rio Grande Cutthroat in their native range as well as leveraging opportunities to chase wild Brook, Rainbow & Brown Trout. The San Juans are a fly-fisher’s paradise, so we’ll talk about your goals and limitations, check flows, and build an experience just for you.
