He was really knowledgeable of the area and took the time to not only show me where and how to fish but why we were fishing there and using certain flies. No matter your... More

Nathaniel knows the San Juan River like the back of his hand. First rate guide service and great company. Knowledgeable, patient. Was able to have my wife hook and land close to 20 fish on her second day fly fishing. Now she's hooked!

I had another great day fishing with Nathaniel and Dave. They work hard and I always enjoy my time on the water with them. I have fished with both of them and you won't find nicer guys. It is a well run operation. See you in March!

Dave and Nathaniel did an excellent job. I took my two sons and they did a great job teaching them how to fish. I have been fishing this tailwater for about 20 years and I think this is the best guide service on the San Juan River for both float and wading trips.

I have fished with Dave Jacquez of Cottonwood Anglers numerous times over the last few years. He always is prepared with knowledge of what flies to use, at each part of the river, and what times are best to fish each section of the river. Dave is very patient with novice fly casters that knot their lines, that get their... More

I have only fished a half-dozen times, while my husband is a very experienced fly fisherman, and Dave was able to... More
