Uncompahgre River Fly Fishing – Montrose, Colorado

LaNoue Dubois Vineyards

LaNoue Dubois Vineyards

Fly fishing and wine? What could be better?

The name of the game for this Uncompahgre River fly fishing experience is big rainbows. Browns and the occasional cutthroat can be found, but big bows are what you’re looking for here. With there being no major diversion structures between the famed Pa-Co-Chu-Puk and LaNoue Dubois, the monstrous fish are free to travel up and down this famed stretch, and they certainly do. Caddis and midge patterns are effective April through November, while PMD’s, terrestrials and stones can be a good choice in summer months.

LaNoue Dubois Vineyards


This private water stretch is located between the south canal and Montrose and Delta canal. Keeping flows high and clear in the summer and exposing great structure in the off season creates some fine Uncompahgre River Fly Fishing. 

Rarely is such an adventurous locale this close to civilization. In a matter of steps, you are transported from a beautiful vineyard to tall willows flanking a wild river. Along the river corridor, there is an abundance of wildlife including a Yellow Bellied Marmot colony, foxes and their kits, bald eagles, and wintering waterfowl. There’s also a standing deer herd of about 15, a mountain lion that travels the river, and last but not least a bear who is usually only seen in the fall. The Uncompahgre River Fly Fishing experience at LaNoue Dubois Vineyards is something you’ll never forget!

Over the years the course of the river has changed, as rivers tend to do. In the mid-2000’s Ridgway made a large release from the dam and it took out the southeast bank and they lost 4 rows of grapevines.  A lot of time and money later, it is as you see it today.  With the grandchildren, they have been on this property for 5 generations and hope to continue to be good stewards of this land for many more generations. Kathy’s father felt that land should be used, and they are happy to be able to share this section of water with avid fishermen. They hope you enjoy it and remember to be good stewards to this beautiful river and land.
