Southwest Colorado: Conejos River Photo Essay

Ivan Orsic / Apr 21, 2017

Editor's note: Some of the boys from Trouts Denver and Trouts Frisco took their weekend off to head down to one of Southwest Colorado's hidden gems. From the looks of Chris' photos and some of the stories they shared around the "office," a good time was had by all. A little dirty water certainly didn't slow them down and they were able to find some of the Conejos' finest. Enjoy our Frisco Store Manager Chris Fildes' photo essay from their 2 days in Southwest Colorado.

There she is, the Conejos!

10 Minute power naps in your waders after lunch are a MUST. Tanner never passes up a time to nap when he's in need.

Send em' back!

Driving to certain spots of the river we were greeted by some guests of the ranch we were staying at. BAAHHHAHAHAA.
