Fishing in Pagosa Springs Colorado!

The San Juan River in Pagosa Springs Colorado is continually stocked throughout the summer providing outstanding trout fishing. In recent years, the community has developed river enhancements to produce more fish habitats. For the largest trout make sure to fish the downtown area! The West branch of the San Juan River also has good rainbow trout fishing. From cutthroat trout fishing available, hike upstream from the trailhead at the end of the road for better fishing. The East Fork Canyon offers excellent rainbow and brown trout fishing on lower ranges; brook and cutthroat trout at higher elevations.
