• The streams of the upper San Juan are not at ALL like the San Juan in New Mexico. These unspoiled rivers and creeks start just miles above where we will be fishing. The 10,000-foot peaks that are still packed with snow in July feed these intimate rivers on their way to the Navajo Reservoir and then the Tail water section of the San Juan that everyone knows. Some of the many streams that we are permitted on through the San Juan National Forest are the West Fork and East Fork of the San Juan, Quartz Creek, Wolf Creek, Turkey Creek, The Upper Piedra, and the Rio Blanco. These streams are great for beginners and experienced anglers alike. As your PAGOSA SPRINGS FLY FISHING GUIDE we will access most of the fishing areas on foot or on a 4 wheeler. The fish average 8 – 15 inches and are eager for dry flies and dropper rigs. Small steams will often give the beginner fly fisherman many more opportunities to hook fish on the dry fly.

• We can either wade fish along streams and rivers, or float fish on a reservoir. I have 16 years experience rowing a dory fon numerous large rivers in the western states. When we fish, we take in the beauty that surrounds us. I am a professional geologist by trade, and a card-carrying Native American Indian - Pembina clan of the Turtle Mountain Agency band of Chippewa in North Dakota. These elements of my background provide experiences and insight that may contribute to the day's quality. Sometimes the fishing venues are near historic sites of interest, or even near amazingly fun local mountain shops and hot springs. There is no reason a fishing trip can't include a little diversion to sneak a preview of something really cool and unique to the area. Let's check out the odd little antique shops or have an ice cream in the local mercantile! Why not? It's your special day!
The point of Tumbling Trout Outfitters, is to enjoy the day, our life, and wonderful fishing.

• My name is Rick Larson, I would love to be your Colorado Fishing Guide. I live in the mountains of Evergreen, Colorado and have fished the higher lakes and streams as long as I can remember.

Most of our float trips take place on the famed Colorado River, however, we also offer float trips on the Grey Reef section of the North Platte River. Our walk/wade trips take place on the Colorado, the Fraser River, Troublesome Creek, Muddy Creek and the Williams Fork tailwater.

We think a guided trip is the quickest way to minimize the learning curve for beginner anglers.

One of our primary goals is to give you the skills to fish on your own.
Colorado fly fishing float trips with Cutthroat Anglers are hosted in rafts and McKenzie style drift boats. Because we offer both types of boats, we can float a wider variety of rivers and flow conditions to keep you safely on the water during peak fishing periods.
