Our Guided Trips

The San Juan Angler offers both half and full day guided fly fishing trips on some of the most scenic and productive trout waters in the four corners region. 

Whether you’re new to the sport or a seasoned angler, our goal is to provide you an enjoyable, successful and memorable day on the water that will keep you coming back.

Our trips take us from the world-famous San Juan River below Navajo Dam to the headwaters high up in the Weminuche Wilderness and everywhere in between. We offer both wade and float trips. Depending on the season and your desired experience, The San Juan Angler can provide a variety of fly fishing opportunities.

We mainly focus our trips on rivers and creeks but do offer guided trips on a couple of lakes and reservoirs in the region. If you’re interested in learning more about lake fishing options, please call the shop for details
