Telluride: An Anglers Paradise

It’s a little tougher to get here which means our local fly-fishing stashes have a lot less fishing pressure than more accessible rivers elsewhere in Colorado. The San Miguel River flows right through town. Drive 45 minutes to Ridgeway and check out the legendary bonanza of fishing just below the dam at Ridgway State Park’s the Pa-Co-Chu-Puk access point. Head west over Lizard Head Pass to access the serene upper and lower Dolores River.  Check with Latitude 38 to inquire about hiring a professional guide.
