Duranglers Private Water Guide Trips
Our Durango fly fishing guides have access to a fair amount of private water on many of our local rivers such as the Animas, Pine, Piedra, and Florida rivers for guided wade fishing trips. These rivers are beautiful, offer privacy, and give a real opportunity for a larger than average fish.
The section on the Los Pinos (aka Pine) just might be the prettiest river we have ever fished, and being a tailwater has very consistent conditions. Access to the lower Pine is very limited, and as such offers a chance for solitude while casting to some of the biggest trout in the state. The Piedra is a wild river in a very wild place and when it is right, can be awesome. The section we have access to is an open river with beautiful riffle drops and plunge pools. Both the Pine and Piedra rivers have a good mix of rainbow and brown trout.
We also have access to a few sections of private water on the lower Animas through our partner Expedition Outside. Private water on the Animas is typically only accessed by float anglers, but when the water is too low to float, wade fishing can be fantastic! Big brown and rainbow trout typically show up in these lower sections and can often be a fish of a lifetime for many anglers.
The Florida River below Lemon Reservoir is entirely private but can fish fantastic through the summer with good flows and conditions, as it is a tailwater. Our private access gives our clients the opportunity for solitude on a smaller Colorado river, with good opportunity to catch solid trout on dries and nymphs.
Our private water fishing trips allow anglers to stalk and target some trophy trout on extremely beautiful pieces of water. Call at 1-888-FISH-DGO or e-mail us at [email protected] for private water availability, rod fee information, or to book a trip on any of our private access water today!
