Default Durango colorado

Greeting: We've plan a trip to 4 corners this coming September and plan to stay in Durango. I know the Animas river flows thru it, so I'm wondering if anyone can suggest some good fishing spots and any other suggestions you might have, i.e. flies, lines etc...
thanks in advance
Manny

Manny: If no one on the forum has suggestions for fishing spots on the Animas River, you might try Duranglers Fly Shop in town: Duranglers - fly fishing resource for Durango Colorado and the San Juan River
They might have a river map showing the public access points.
Everytime I have been in Durango it has been in the spring during run off so I have never fished the Animas, but I have fished the San Juan 4-5 times and each time I used Duranglers guide service and they have been great each time.

I grew up in Bloomfield NM. 40 minutes from Durango. If you feel like a boat trip. Drive down and fish the San Juan. A guide the first day will give you an idea of where to wade fish and what to use the next day.

There are lots of small creeks around Durango and over to Pagosa Springs. Viaceta has a pretty stream.

Good luck.

PS... I forgot.. TU and Durangelers worked on Hermosa Creek to get Colorado Cuts in the stream

Get a San Juan National Forest map when you arrive. Cascade, Lime and Hermosa creeks are good, local spots to try. As mentioned above, Duranglers are a good resource and a day with a guide on the San Juan below Navajo dam can be fun.
