Fishing

Man enjoying fishing in Conjose river.
Conejos River for fishing.When staying at the Conejos Ranch, you may fish our privately stocked mile of riverfront property or over 30 smaller streams and tributaries in the county that offer some remarkable fishing of their own. The season generally runs from May though October - with July, August, and September being prime months for dry-fly enthusiasts.

If you do not like to "strike" out on your own, hire an experienced fishing guide. These trips center around the Conejos River, which has long been one of Colorado's premier fisheries primarily German Browns and Rainbow Trout, but also include the smaller streams. While fish in most of these smaller streams seldom reach trophy proportions (with a few exceptions) their fighting nature and sheer numbers make up for any lack of size. This is great sport on light lines and rods and it's not unusual for accomplished fly fishermen to land dozens of trout in a day.

The real beauty of these backwoods streams is that it is not unusual to fish all day long and never see another human being.

For your added enjoyment, your guide has access to fishing on private properties.

In order to provide our clients with a quality experience, we prefer to limit our trips to no more than two clients per fishing guide.

Fishing guides and a completely stocked fly shop and equipment rental is a short distance of the Ranch.

Fly fishing lessons are available. The Conejos Ranch can help you book a fishing guide. We are located on State Highway 17, fourteen miles west of Antonito, CO.
