Trout Heaven: Full-Day Dude Ranch Fishing Trips

Full-Day Fishing

Sensational Fly Fishing for Our Sportsmen Guests.

The following information applies to the locations and types of fishing you will find at each of these full-day fishing trip spots.



San Juan River

Wade fishing on the "Blue Ribbon Waters" of the San Juan River just below the Navajo Dam. Open to the public, this section of river has some of the finest rainbow trout fishing in the world. Great fishing that’s located approximately 60 miles south of the ranch in New Mexico. Limited take area but mostly catch and release with barbless flies. Guide recommended; guide cost of $150 includes New Mexico fishing license.

 

High Mountain Streams

Guided trips to various streams and rivers in the San Juan National Forest. Brown, cutthroat, and brook trout are found in gorgeous mountain locations. Catch and release with barbless flies. Maximum of two fishermen per day. Guide recommended.

 

Lime Creek

Wade fish a major tributary to the Upper Animas River. Lime Creek boasts a hearty supply of rainbow, brook, and cutthroat trout in the 5" to 10" range.

 

Cascade Creek

Originating deep within the San Juan Mountains, Cascade Creek offers the angler more than 14 miles of fishable water in some of the most beautiful wilderness Southwest Colorado has to offer. Above the aqueduct diversion, Cascade Creek provides good fishing for small brook and rainbow trout.

 

Hermosa Creeks

Hermosa's waters offer you the angler a great place to find solitude, along with an opportunity to test your stalking abilities. Most fish are small, but their fight is big – and the colors on the native Colorado golden cutthroat are spectacular.

 

Float Trips

We can contract with Animas Valley Anglers, a local outfitter, for float trips on the San Juan or Animas Rivers. Outfitter cost applies.
