Fly Fishing Southern Colorado: An Angler's Guide (Pruett) (Paperback)
Even the roadside angler can find idyllic spots to cast a fly. Fly Fishing Southern Colorado is an essential guide for any angler interested in fishing "the Little Switzerland of Colorado."
From the majestic San Juan Mountains to the wide-open expanses of the San Luis Valley, few fishing areas rival the pristine beauty, diversity, and solitude of southern Colorado's rivers and trout streams. This guide thoroughly explores the region's watersheds: the Conejos, Rio Grande, San Juan, Piedra, Los Pi os, Animas, and Dolores, as well as the still waters of high mountain areas.
Included are detailed maps of the region and each watershed; area regulations and conservation policies; safety precautions, weather, and wildlife information; and a list of the region's important aquatic insects. For those willing to hoof it, southern Colorado's streams and rivers offer old fashioned, have-the-river-to-yourself fly fishing.
