The Conejos River is a ninety plus mile long river located in south central Colorado. Rated one of the finest trout streams in Colorado it is relatively unknown to anglers outside Colorado; it’s wild trout are plentiful and it’s tributaries offer many miles of secluded water. A tributary of the Rio Grande River, flyfishing the Conejos River is as good as fly fishing gets, anywhere. You can literally leave your cabin or RV site on foot and have your line in the water in just a few minutes.

You can start up at the top on the Cumbres Pass as it flows into and out of Trujillo Meadows Reservoir or you can drive south about 15 minutes from twin Rivers Cabins & RV park and go into New Mexico and be fishing it in no time. Great for Browns, Rainbows, and Brookies!
