Fishing in and around Durango, Colorado

Fly Fishing in Durango

The waters in and around Durango offer some of the best fishing in the USA. Visitors can opt to fish in the high elevation Weminuche Wilderness, along the shores of the Animas as it flows through town, or on the mellow San Juan River. Whatever your fancy, anglers fishing the southwest have the opportunity to seize trophy sized trout –rainbow, brook, brown or the native, cutthroat— on some of the most pristine and beautiful waters in the West.

At a number of shops in downtown Durango – Gardenswartz and Duranglers to name a few – visitors can find up-to-date information about the best spot for that time of year, as well as help with selecting the appropriate gear.
