Just 30 minutes from Durango, lies a rarely fished section of the Animas. This multi-use location serves as a river take-out, hemp and vegetable farm and trout fishery. Big browns and rainbows lurk in the deep holes and runs anaware that our clients are coming to fool them into their nets.

The top section of water on the property is a beautiful boulder-pocked segment with great trout habitat. The river then riffles into the massive corner pocket hole followed by a deep, long run. The boulder hole is next and the river then tapers into a beautiful cobble section until you reach the boundary. The entire run is approximately 3000’ long and features large hatches April through November.

BWO’s start coming off in April, followed by Caddis, Golden Stones and PMD’s. Streamers are also a great choice for looks all year round. The Massive Hole is just a stone’s throw away, so book the combo for a full day of big trout on the line for you and your buddies.
