Josh Curtis

Josh bases his guiding and fishing out of Pagosa Springs Colorado. His home waters are Hatcher Lake, Upper San Juan and Piedra River. Josh loves cranking on the oars; be it the Upper Juan, Rio or the local lakes around Pagosa. Josh is a hard working guide that prides himself on putting clients on lots of fish.

He is one of the most innovative fly tyers out there and is more than willing to share his secret fly patterns. He knows it takes more than the fly to get fish in the net. He is well versed in all the new styles and techniques; be it "loch style" lake rigs as well as the fast paced Czech and Polish style of nymphing. But he also likes watching reckless browns smash big dries.

Josh spends his free time fishing, fishing and fishing. He competes on the national level and has been a Team USA member for a number of years. He has competed at the highest levels.

Josh also spends a large part of his guide season on the Conjos River system. Drop us a line for more info and booking Josh on that fantastic river system.

We are the best, that's right, the best guide service that is based out of Durango Colorado and fishes the entire southwest. We are strickly a guide service, no retail operations to ... moredistract us from what is truly important, the trout. We offer custom and peronalized fly fishing trips on all the great waters of the southwest. That includes the San Juan Quality Waters (plus the mid and lower river), Rio Grande, Animas, upper San Juan, Dolores (upper and lower), Pine, Florida, mountain creeks, Root Pond trophy trout lake, headwaters and more!

We are open, and more than willing to fish 365 days a year. We offer killer spring wade and float trips, solid summer hatches, fall adventures and very consistent winter angling. Great guides, all with the knowledge and personalities to make sure your time on the water with Animas Valley Anglers is special and rewarding. No pressure guiding, great teachers, stunning scenery and a few nice trout will help make memories that will last a life time time (year after year)!
