Fishing

With all the rivers, lakes, ponds and reservoirs, you could say that Pagosa Springs is a fisherman’s paradise. There’s so many good fishing holes, allowing you to catch everything from catfish to pike to kokanee salmon to rainbow trout. During the summer, the Pagosa Quality Fishing Project stocks the San Juan River downtown with larger trout to keep the fishing experience in this area like no other.

Sportsman's Campground & Mountain Cabins

One of the most popular Pagosa Springs campgrounds, our campground was carved from the original Toner/Taylor family homestead by direct descendants of the Toner/Taylor family who still own and operate several of the working ranches in our area. Cattle are still moved and fences still maintained by workers on horseback just as they have for over 100 years. Development in our area has largely been limited because of the large percentage of national forest land and the proximity to the Weminuche Wilderness, the largest wilderness area in Colorado.

Toner Ranch Outfitting, LLC

High country outfitting is almost as old as the hills themselves.
