Animas River Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Animas River is large by southwest Colorado standards (100 feet wide in some places) and there is no dam interrupting its flow from Silverton to Farmington, New Mexico. The narrow gauge Durango and Silverton Railroad runs through the scenic canyons and along the upper river from June to August. (Make reservations six weeks in advance.)

Types of Fish: Brown, rainbow and a few cutthroat and brookies. Fish 18–20 inches are taken. This guide covers the "where, when, and how" to fish in this region. You'll get a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to bring, and the best flies to use."
