Fly Fishing on The Conejos River Near This Colorado Mountain Property
The 93-mile-long Conejos River, a tributary of the Rio Grande, drains the eastern San Juan Mountains, which features some of the San Luis Valley's most incredible scenery. Mostly wide and shallow, the river only occasionally has steep descents, and near Antonito, Colorado, it's home to some truly spectacular fly-fishing.
The beautiful, remote Conejos River Valley, is home to rugged cliffs, including The Pinnacles a popular whitewater rafting destination, and wide-open meadows perfect for casting. It's basically home to every type of trout imaginable, and it's not hard to see why fly-fishermen come from all over the American West to check out the Conejos.
Avid fly-fishermen can have a choose-your experience in the region, thanks, also, to the fact that the area doesn't see a ton of visitation. Several types of trout make their homes in the Conejos, but the Antonito area is primarily known for its rainbow, brown, and cutthroat fishing. The brown here, especially, tend to be bruisers. There's fishing to be had on the Conejos year-round, though summertime is by far the best season. Whether you're an expert angler or a newbie, though, the Conejos is a terrific place to take in the picture-perfect sights and enjoy the excellent casting.
Fishing below the dam is nice on warm winter days. Spring fishing is good in the tailwater section, but avoid the heavy spring runoff in June midges and mayflies are best for winter and spring conditions. Fish those plus stoneflies, caddis, and terrestrials in the summer, and in the fall, when you're most likely to catch a big brown, fish midges, mayflies, and caddis.
