The San Juan Angler

About Us

The San Juan Angler is a specialty fly shop and guide service located in downtown Durango, serving southwest Colorado and northern New Mexico. Operating out of the bustling downtown district, the shop has been creating memories for anglers that last a lifetime. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will quickly address all of your questions and needs. We cater to all ages and skill levels with our numerous trip options on our year-round fisheries. Stop in and see us upstairs for the most current fishing reports and stock up on supplies for your next day on the water.

What we do

The San Juan Angler offers year-round guiding on a number of diverse rivers and creeks in the 4 corners region. We host both half and full day walk/wade trips and float trips. Our excursions are all-inclusive and rates cover gear, equipment, flies and terminal tackle. On full days the guides also provide lunch. 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. Depending on the season and your desired experience, The San Juan Angler can provide a variety of fly fishing opportunities. 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 per person per day. 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.
