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. Our team of passionate guides demonstrates the knowledge and experience to be successful in our wide variety of water.

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.

Our trips are all inclusive and the rate covers all gear, equipement and tackle including flies. The only additional cost are fishing licenses and customary guide gratuity.  Guests will need to provide their own transportation. 

If you’re looking for solitude on the water, you might consider a trip on one of our private ranches. Slow the pace down and have peace-in-mind that you’ll have the river to yourself. All private water comes with an additional fee of $75 to $100 per person per day.
