Welcome all my Gortex sporting friends. We invite you to the pristine waters of the Conejos River. Fishing here is a chance to explore the last underdeveloped waters in the West. We are a full service fly shop and guide service with the ONLY USFS and BLM permits to flyfish the Conejos River and its tributaries.
Fishing opprtunities vary, and you can do something different everyday. Choose from floating the Gold Medal water of the Rio Grande, throwing dry flies to wild Browns or Rainbows of the Conejos, or explore the clear beautiful high mountain streams for big Cutthroats.
Bringing wife, girlfriend or kids? Family entertainment awaits in the San Juan Valley. Within an hour's drive you can find historical churches, mineral spas, Gator Ranches and the Great Sand Dunes National Park.
Hello to all the flyfishermen out there. Call us to find out about our fall Fish-Eat-Sleep specials.
We are discounting numerous items in our flyshop. Items like Sage rods, Scott rods, Lamson reels, Simms and Patagoing waders and boots.
Weather is beautiful. It might be 100 F in the south but not here! Cool nights abound.
8/13/2014 -- It's a great time to get in a late summer trip to the Conejos. The summer crowds have thinned out this week and there is plenty of space to fish. I went up to the pocket water on Monday and there were very few people out. The fishing was good using g-strings, floss worms, various mayfly emergers and nymph patterns. Seeing hoppers on the lower river as well as big stonefly nymphs moving around. Lots of adults mayflys and small patterns have been turning fish on the surface.
July 22- Time to get in some fishing. We've had some great trips the last week. The fish have crushed the Drake's in the Meadow and should continue for a few more days. Fish on the lower Conejos have been keyed in on chrionocones and stoneflys. The release from Platoro is making the pocket water the place to be for the first time this summer. Give us a call to book a cabin or setup a guide trip.
Large Stoneflies are back on the Conejos. We have been seeing adults here by the shop since Saturday. The lower river has seen the fish eating the rubber legs hard in the morning. The Los Pinos and La Jara are also a good choice. Give us a call and get over to Southern Colorado and get to fishing while it hot!
Runoff is back at it. The river should start to drop and clear in the next week and give us chance to start seeing a few bugs on the surface.
Get a chance give us a call and book some time with us. The cabins and guides all have holes in the schedule in May and early June. Most of Colorado will be blown out with heavy runoff for the next 6 weeks while the Conejos drainage with the convenience of the dam at Platoro will run clear and fish well with no crowds during those 6 weeks.
The Conejos is really looking great. We had a nice runoff this year that put some water into Platora that should make for some good water flows later this summer.
We are seeing a nice Salmon fly hatch going in the fly water. We have had some very production guide trips this week with anglers catching fish on big dry flies! Lots of Caddis and stonefly nymphs working as well.
Give me a call and get over and get in some fishing, The Los Pinos has a flow of 55 cfs and is also fishing great.
