Fly Fishing Trips & Rates
We offer a wide variety of guided fly fishing trips throughout Northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado.
Our trips are available on every type of water from small, high mountain meadow streams to larger rivers and alpine lakes and ponds.Day Fishing Trips:
Wade trips are available on all of the rivers and streams we fish on; float trips are only available on The San Juan River and The Rio Grande. Our rates per day are as follows:
1 person for a full-day - $365
2 people for a full-day - $420 ($210.00 per person)
3 people for a full-day - $510 ($170.00 per person)
1 person for a half-day - $305
2 people for a half-day - $365 ($182.50 per person)
3 people for a half-day - $440 ($146.66 per person)
1 person for a full-day - $380
2 people for a full-day - $435 ($217.50 per person)
We recommend, if your time constraints allow it, that you consider doing a full day trip. You will have much more time to relax, fish and enjoy yourself on the river, for the same amount of driving time as a half day trip.
We provide transportation for most of our trips - often we can arrange to pick you up where you are staying. Full-day trips include a nice lunch, snacks and beverages. Half-day trips include snacks and beverages. All fishing gear (rods & reels; waders; flies & tippet; etc.) is provided at no added cost.
For the very best fly fishing experience, please consider having one guide for every two people going on a trip. The maximum number of people per guide is 3. Groups of more than 3 people will require additional guides.
We will be honest with you about current water and weather conditions and strive to take you to an area where you will have the optimum chances of catching fish. If you have any particular type of fly fishing you want to do (i.e. nymphing vs. dry flies) or type of water you are most interested in, we can almost always accommodate your wishes. Please check out our Rivers & Streams page for more in depth descriptions and photos of most of the rivers and streams we fish on.
Day Trips on Private Water & The Valles Caldera National Preserve:
For those who may want a more exclusive fishing experience, we do trips on a few select private ranches and preserves. These trips often become one of a fly fisherman's most memorable experiences. Along with beauty and seclusion, private water usually offers an angler the best chances at catching and landing trophy sized fish. The private ranches and the Valles Caldera (VCNP) charge a rod/access fee for an angler to fish on their waters. This rod/access fee will be added onto the cost of the trip.
Rod/Access Fees for Private Water & Ranches (per angler):
Abeyta Ranch: $65
Quinlan Ranch: $80
MK Ranch: $80
Spear U Ranch: $80
Oso Piccolo Ranches: $80
High Timber Ranch: $85
Cimarroncita Ranch: $100
Bar X Bar Ranch: Half-day $75 ~ Full-day $100
Overnight and Multi-day Fishing Trips:
We also offer the option of going on fishing trips that are for more than one day. This is often the best way to experience fly fishing in the more remote areas we fish in. We can customize these types of trips so you can fish a group of different rivers and streams at one time. These trips usually are all inclusive packages that cover guiding, meals, lodging and transportation for the whole trip. Please contact us to discuss specific possibilities and details of what we arrange for you.
