I agree with previous review, but would add we parked near dam off highway and loaded our kayaks in at dam. Much easier, and fishing best at that half of lake. Fly rod with a floating white fly works great. Just let it sit.
Best centralized location to fish and explore Conejos River area. Fish Elk Creek and Conejos without driving. Drive up and down Conejos to experience the smaller upper river and larger river below. Many small creeks in area. Make trip to Osier and fish Los Primos. Try Trujillos Meadows. Camping is in good private units. Well maintained. Great camp host. Coming here since mid 60s.
