  • Just spent the day with Rob on the river. I brought my 17 year old son and my brother in law from Hawaii to do some San Juan fishing. My son is a first timer and I was amazed that he out fished me. Our guide Rob was awesome!

  • Rob kept us in fish and flies for two days and we caught a lot but missed more in spite of his coaching. Several Brownies were the highlights of the trip.

  • had a fantastic time . Ryan show us vets with NM Healing Waters a great time. He has a vast knowledge of the river to put us on fish. He made it fun and we learned a lot. A sincere thanks from the heart from this old vet. Highly recommend

  • This last weekend I had my first opportunity to float the San Juan. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Jeremy Nolan knows his stuff, and he's a great teacher. Not only did he put me in the right places all day, but he taught me how to fish the Juan. What a great fishery and what a great day. Thanks, Jeremy!!!
