Fishing in SW Colorado Near Ridgway and Ouray


fly fishing in southwest coloradoIn August 2010, the Alpine Triangle, near the towns of Ouray, Silverton, and Lake City, in the San Juan mountains in SW Colorado were named one of the "Best Wild Places" by Field and Stream magazine.  There are pictures from their three day adventure vacation into the area as well as some details outlining their route.  Day 2 included a trip over Cinnamon Pass into Lake City.  Day 3 began with a jeep ride into Ouray and Ridgway. 

Guiding services can be provided by Tony Chelf (pictured above), also known as the Fly Fishing Cop (He was an officer with the City of Ouray Police Department for 30 years and he retired last summer).  He knows the areas well and is a former President of Trout Unlimited Gunnison Gorge Chapter.  If you would like further information on fishing in the area, contact the Fly Fishing Cop at  (970) 596-4697.

You can also head to Ridgway, ten minutes north of Ouray.  RIGS is a fly shop located in Ridgway, Colorado.  They provide guide services year round in the vicinity of Ouray and Ridgway too.  They sell Tenkara fly fishing rods and they are the only seller in Colorado to do so.  These rods are used in the traditional Japanese method of fly-fishing where only a rod, line and fly - but no reel - are used.    RIGS even maintains a fish report for the rivers and streams near Ouray and Ridgway.

Fishing in Colorado is regulated by the Colorado Division of Wildlife and their full and comprehensive brochure for the 2012 fishing season for the state of Colorado is online.  This link is a great place for anglers to begin trip planning to southwest Colorado.  It includes information on licenses, gold medal waters, and fish species.  Enjoy your Colorado Vacation in the San Juan Mountains as there are so many things to do in Ouray and beyond!


I am really impressed by the work you did in this article. It’s great enough to pull my attention and in reading fly fishing equipment article for once to understand that your pen is really mightier than the sword.
