Josh Jarvis

Josh is a Durango local who grew up fishing and hunting throughout the Southwest. Josh is a pleasure to fish with due to his sense of humor and years of experience as a guide. Float fishing may be Josh's forte, but he also enjoys small creeks and stalking monster trout on the Animas.

Josh began his guide career on the South Platte near Saratoga Wyoming. He also spent many Durango winters in New Zealand exploring, fishing and guiding. Josh's travel company is Globe Trouters operated down-under from December through April. Contact Animas Valley Anglers for more info on Josh's amazing NZ trips.

Josh is also an accomplished builder. His company, Jarvis Construction keeps him very busy when he is not guiding.

His family life in Bayfield Colorado also keeps him very busy. Josh, his wife Katie and their three children enjoy camping, rafting and fishing throughout the Southwest.

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)!
