There is no greater fan of fly fishing than the worm. ~Patrick F. McManus, Never Sniff a Gift Fish, 1979
Just minutes from the Adobe Inn is world-class fly-fishing! Although Fall and spring are great times to fish the San Juan River, beat the crowds of people and experience premier fishing in January, February, and March. Not only are these months some of the year’s best for fishing, you won’t have to fight the masses for a spot on the river.
Who doesn’t want to know where the local fishing hotspots and hatches are located? The owner of the Adobe Inn, a fellow fly fishing enthusiast, will love to show you to them when he is in town! Just ask for Joe.
Beautiful Vallecito Lake is a mere 22 miles from Durango and is full of gorgeous rainbow, brown trout, and northern pike. Take this short drive and enjoy the breathtaking Colorado scenery.
Want to know another great fishing secret? Located directly behind the Adobe Inn is some of the area’s best fishing along the Animas River. Stroll out the back door of the Adobe Inn and watch your line tighten cast after cast.
In Durango, anglers will find several fishing service stores to assist them with their needs . . . fish on!
