Fishing Reports Rio Grande Angler fly shop & South Fork Anglers guide service, the area's ultimate fly fishing source on the Rio Grande River in Colorado. Located in Creede, Colorado and South Fork, Colorado Sun, 18 Feb 2018 19:42:36 +0000 Joomla! 1.5 - Open Source Content Management en-gb End of Season Our shop in Creede is now closed for the winter.  However, our sister store in South Fork (8200 Mountain Sports) is open all winter.


Thanks for your continued support.  We had another awesome fishing season on the Rio Grande with huge hatches, plenty of water and eager trout.  El Nino is bearing down on the southern San Juans this winter and could bring more snow (700+ inches) than we have seen in a very long time.

*We are adding another river for float trips for late May and early June next year.  This spot holds great fish and has been sought after for some time.  Details to follow...   If you are interested in booking a trip in June or early July I suggest you book early.  These dates normally sell out very fast!


Be good people, Joel.
