I fish with Chris Taylor and Fisheads almost every year just after New Years and it is always fabulous. Not only is the fishing great, but I always come home a better fisherman because of Chris' considerable technical and teaching skills. The Fisheads restaurant serves up hearty, beautifully prepared meals running the gamut from a giant breakfast burrito (not even... More

I went with my husband who fishes and I kind of stayed in the room a lot because the weather was a bit too cold for me to go watch him since we were there in December. The rooms are not fancy but are comfortable, just as you would expect for a fishing resort in this area. I took a... More

The owner and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Lets face it, you're here for the fishing. And the fishing is unbelievable. The rooms are primitive but the restaurant food and staff are great. I would stay here again.

My elderly family member and I stayed at Fishheads with our small dog in order to meet up with friends at Navajo Lake and in Aztec, NM for the weekend. The location was perfectly situated between the two points, but beyond that the room and staff were wonderful! We had to leave for the lodge late in the day, but... More

We did a guided float trip with Mike and had a wonderful day. My husband caught fish right away, but I hadn't had any luck by lunch time. Mike was determined that I was going to catch something. The afternoon turned out much better and my husband and I both caught some large trout (and have the pictures to prove... More

We fished with Marcus he is an awesome river guide, had a great day caught 3 big trout, and countless quality fish. The Backcast Cafe has a great concept really fresh food we enjoyed 2 meals, especially smoked prime rib. Staff very helpful. We plan to return and will request Marcus again.

We stayed at the lodge area which was clean, comfortable, quiet, and a huge upgrade for some of the other lodging in the area. Meals were all good. The fishing was very good. The San Juan is one of favorite places to go and this trip will be hard to beat. The weather was perfect, minimal wind, not hot. The... More

I stayed 4 nights with 3 fishing days in mid-May. My room was in the new acquisition, right on the river, and was perfectly fine: clean rooms, excellent beds, ok bathroom. Only negative was the need to drive to the restaurant, which has a pretty sophisticated menu for an unpretentious fishing lodge, and food that is absolutely delicious. The fly... More

Rooms are clean, beds are firm and comfortable, nice flat screen television. Most people are here to fish, and everyone here wants you to have a good time! Peggy's daughter is a guide on Navajo Reservoir, and Chris and Peggy work the river as guides. Their info is very helpful, and I was lucky enough to meet with Chris' dad,... More

My brother-in-law and I selected a "package" stay at Fisheads, i.e. room, guide, boat and all tackle and it was great! The room was large, clean and comfortable, the guides were excellent, and wanted to see us catch fish, which we did. It was a pleasant experience and with the restaurant on premises ,very convenient.
