Rick Hooley
Rick is one of the most genuine guys you will ever come across. Rick has nearly the most guide and angling experience in the history of the San Juan River below Navajo Dam. He is the owner of Rocky Mountain Anglers and has been a big part of the growth of Animas Valley Anglers in the early years. With the San Juan being just one fishery in a region loaded with diverse angling options, Rick is now offering Colorado guide trips to his long-time San Juan clients through AVA. He also offers guide trips on the San Juan for his return clients and friends. He is a great guy to work with and is a tremendous guide. His patience is unmatched.

When Not Guiding
Just because he might have a rare dayoff from guiding does not mean this vetran angler will not get out there on the water for some "me" time. Off the water Rick spends time traveling the Southwest with his family. Rick is also an accomplished bow hunter. He spends countless hours in pursuit of elk and other big game in southwest Colorado, northern New Mexico and the world.
