New Mexico and Colorado in Summer - the fishing's great!

Snow Pack

With over 130% snow pack this year and a late run-off there's going to be plenty of water this year throughout the Rocky Mountains! In fact, most streams are blown out with run-off right now but "not to worry" we have the best fishing around on Culebra Creek. It's been fishing very good for bows and browns 16 to 20 inches!

The Rio Costilla and Cimarron have also been at very fishable levels with some good fishing to be experienced there. Most of the other streams in the area will be running off for most of June it looks like but July looks spectacular so start making your plans now to fish with us. There will be some great fishing on all the area streams including the Conejos, the Los Pinos and the Rio Grande and it's tributaries.

Wyoming Fishing As Good As It Gets

If You Haven’t Fished the Green River with Us, This is What You’ve Been Missing!!!

It may be winter still but it’s not too early to start planning for your spring fishing on the Green River below Fontenelle Dam in southwest Wyoming. We are already off to a fantastic start to another great year on the Green River, catching a bunch of big browns, bows and cuts. Every spring on the Green River we catch great numbers of big bows, cuts and browns!

For years now people have been coming to Wyoming to fish our fantastic waters in southwest Wyoming during summer and fall for big trout but it has been difficult to get anglers to understand just how “great” our fishing is for gigantic rainbows, cutthroats and browns in the spring!

Don’t wait any longer! 
With only 2 guides a day allowed on the Refuge,
we are filling up fast!

Guide Dan Parson With a Spring Brown on the Green

April, May and June provide anglers the opportunity to catch “huge” bows, cutthroats and browns and sometimes there’s superb dry fly fishing as well. Baetis hatch daily in April through May and PMD’s and bigger bugs can work well from mid-May through June even if the water levels go up. That’s right! The last few years we’ve had some of our best fishing during high (but clear) flows in late May and June but you have to really know the river well. That’s where we come in; we know the river better than anyone, period!

I’ve been touting the great spring fishing in Wyoming for years, yet every year anglers ignore this advice and insist on waiting until more traditional times like July and August to come fish. Big bows on the Green and Ham’s Fk. are in pre-spawn and spawn mode, eagerly feeding to give them the energy to spawn.  Big browns and cuts are gorging on the abundance of worms, leaches, larvae, nymphs, minnows and crayfish that are present all spring in this fertile fishery!

This year take my advice and book your trip for the Green River and Ham’s Fk. in April, May or June, you won’t regret it!!

Call me personally today and I’ll set you up on an amazing spring fly fishing trip.

Solitary Angling Club

Enjoy exclusive fly fishing club membership privileges!

Since 1983 Van Beacham, owner of the Solitary Angler, and his staff have been flyfishing guides in New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming to some of the least known, top secret waters anywhere. Over the years some of the places we used to guide have become more popular and overfished, spoiling the solitude and lessening the angling experience. As the fishing pressure increases, those unspoiled places with almost virgin trout that used to be so plentiful just a few years ago are disappearing.

From high mountain lakes and streams to wild river canyons and sprawling private ranches, the Solitary Angler has a variety of year-round angling opportunities to suit any angler’s needs, always without the crowds.

On our web pages you will find useful information about many of our waters and you can call us any time to get up-to-the-minute information. However, in order to protect the majority of our best fisheries, we don’t mention them here.

Currently, we have several new fantastic fisheries to offer our customers. Just contact us at info@thesolitaryangler.com , or call us and we’ll match you up with just the right place for the ultimate angling experience.

From sprawling private ranches with four-star accommodations to mountain lakes and streams and wild river canyons, Van Beacham’s Solitary Angler has the fishing opportunities and the guides to make your next fishing trip an unfor­get­table experience.
