Fishheads on the San Juan River is the best. The lodging meets all your needs, fly shop well stock, food in the restaurant fills your belly and the guides are the hardest working on the river. They will put you on fish in all conditions. No need to look anywhere else.

We booked this trip for our son’s 12th birthday, and lets just say he can’t stop talking about how it was the best birthday ever. We met our guides, Marcus and JB, after a wonderful breakfast at the cafe. We spent a full 8hrs on the water. The guides made sure to keep our party t

What flies should I bring summer, spring, & fall?
Generally when nymph fishing, you use a tandem rig with an egg or red hook with a midge below. At times I have used Copper Johns and Pheasant Tails but generally red hooks and midge larva. Both shops can advise you of what is working. If you hire a guide they will furnish flies. Good luck and good fishing!
