If you do the San Juan, I would also recommend doing a float instead of a wade. It's not a long float, but you will more than likely catch more fish that way. Also, the guide will have all of the equipment if you do not have it already. Corky (one of duranglers guides) is a fellow Texan, whom also guides bowhunting in TX,CO, and NM, if you are into that kind of string and feathers also.
x2 I just moved back from Ridgway on the N side of the passes from Durango. It's a couple hr drive but well worth it. Check out Rigs in Ridgway http://fishrigs.com/
. They will do wade trips w u in various places around the San Juans and Float trips down the Gunnison. I recommend the float trip. The fishing up there is better than down in Durango.
