Fishing—it’s an age-old sport enjoyed by men and women all over the world. However, it’s never been enjoyed more than at our guest ranch. Colorado Trails is located by the San Juan National Forest and gives our guests a variety of spots to choose from. Fishing is all about finding the right location, and the perfect spot is here.

We love to fish, and if you’re planning a fishing vacation, then our guest ranch is the place to be. At our ranch, even the beginners can enjoy the wonderful pleasures of fishing. Did you forget your fishing equipment at home? It’s okay. Our fly fishing center is equipped with all the tools you need for a fun fishing vacation.

We have a variety of fishing spots to choose from, ranging from high mountain streams to ponds. Our half-day fishing options are great for beginners, or those who just want to get away for a little while. You have the choice of the El Dorado Ranch Pond, Rainbow Ranch Pond, Worden’s Stretch of the Florida River, El Dorado Ranch and Rainbow Ranch‘s private sections of the Florida River, and Animas River Downtown. Guides are required on most of these fishing spots, to ensure your safety. These locations are abundant in cutthroat, brown, and rainbow trout.

Our full-day options are for those who want to spend their day relaxed by the stream, enjoying the beautiful mountains and forest surrounding them. You can choose between the San Juan River and high mountain streams such as Lime Creek, Cascade Creek, and Hermosa Creek. Guides are recommended for these, but they are not required. These spots are ideal spots for all inclusive family vacations. You won’t have to worry about going home empty handed.

Whether you’re a beginner or a pro at fishing, our guest ranch offers the perfect spots to cast and relax. You will enjoy the fresh air and the calming sounds of the water. You can grab a few buddies, get away from it all, and enjoy nature.
