A guided float trip on the San Juan is an excellent way to experience fly fishing in a relaxing but fun way via drift boat. Taking a float trip with a Duranglers guide is a good option for younger anglers as well as those who have a tough time with wading. Leave the navigation to the guide and concentrate on fishing! Plus, a drift boat makes getting to those deep, lunker-holding San Juan runs, inaccessible to the wade angler, a reality.
Want a little change of pace from a float trip? Then a wade trip is the name of the game. The float fishing beings at the Texas hole put in…which leaves almost a mile of water up-river to the dam accessible to wade anglers only. While we wade fish all of the San Juan River Quality Waters, the upper flats are a good way to experience the diversity of the San Juan. Sight fishing to big and picky trout with small flies is often the name of the game here. Our wade guides will be able to teach you the finer points of stalking picky trout.
