The Rio Grande Gorge

Most people think of the Rio Grande as a muddy channel along the Mexican border, but like many great American rivers, the Rio Grande originates high in the Rocky Mountains.

New Mexico Fly Fishing

Taos, New Mexico is located in the heart of the Southern Rockies. Nowhere else in the lower 48 can you find such a unique blend of magnificent scenery, beautiful weather and excellent fly fishing on a year-round basis.

Visit high mountain lakes and streams – Red River, Rio Hondo, Cimarron River, Rio Costilla in Carson National Park’s pristine Valle Vidal, Coyote Creek below Angel Fire, Eagle Nest Lake. Hike in “wild and scenic” river canyons like the Rio Grande Gorge. Explore the more accessible, but fantastically beautiful Cimarron Canyon, with a northern New Mexico fly fishing guide consequently, offers a variety of fly fishing opportunities, without the crowds.

Wyoming Fly Fishing

The lower Green River tailwater below Fontenelle Dam and dozens of wild mountain freestone streams flowing from the immense Wyoming Range all offer pristine settings and “superior flyfishing without the crowds” for exceptionally large trout, all within a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Jackson or Salt Lake City.

Southwest Wyoming is the best kept flyfishing secret left in the lower 48 states!

Solitary Angling Club

SAC Members and their guests get to fish all the fisheries I lease on a reservation basis without a guide (a couple of exceptions). When you reserve a section, your party is the only one there. We require a minimum of two days rest per section per week. Most sections receive a lot more than that.

The result is an abundance of clean, strong, unspooked trout waiting for you to test your skills on!

Great fishing on Culebra Creek!

"I had a great day of fishing on Culebra Creek with David. He was a most pleasant and knowledgeable guide. I caught 15 trout, 14 of which were large and fat. They were consistently the healthiest fish I have ever seen.

All but one was over 15 inches, with the largest rainbow measuring 21 inches, and the largest brown being 20 inches. David kept one of my rods rigged with a dry fly setup, and one with wet flies. I never stopped fishing except to rest a second, take a fish off the hook, or to eat and drink. It was a dream day."

the best day of fishing either of us have ever had

I just wanted to let you know how satisfied we both were with the trip. Without a doubt the best day of fishing either of us have ever had.

Rob was incredible. Extremely patient with us, very friendly, and cooks far better than he needed to for a day of fishing. If I were to ever visit Kemmerer again, I would definitely book another trip and ask for Rob specifically.
