Your Guides

All trips include full instruction on fishing the San Juan River and Navajo Lake waters from friendly and experienced guides that live to fish and do so nearly every day. Our guides are not only knowledgeable, but courteous and work with both the unexperienced and experts. Many of our clients are families with children that have never seen a fishing rod, however we also take out repeat clients that are expert fisherman that enjoy the knowledge our guides have of the San Juan River, hatches and fish behavior.

Meeting Point

Nearly all of our guided trips begin at the Rainbow Lodge or Enchanted HideAway Lodge, where your guide will meet you and take you to your fishing destination.  We can arrange to meet you at any of the other lodges, fly shops, boat ramps, airstrip, or even in a nearby town.

The Fishing

Once the boat is loaded with all gear, food and people, we will head off to the first fishing spot of the day. Our guides are experts and excellent instructors so they will custom tailor each day on the water to the client. A family group will have a different agenda for the day than an expert fly fisherman and various conditions such as seasons, river fishing vs lake fishing and target species will all play a role in your day on the water.
