The Piedra (stone in Spanish) is located about as far south in Colorado as one can go. It flows south out of the San Juan Mountains and joins the San Juan River to form Navajo Lake. It offers some 40 miles of exceptionally beautiful wild trout fly fishing with lots of pools. riffles, and slow moving sections. Portions of this 30 foot wide freestone stream have been considered for designation and protection as a Wild and Scenic River.
The Piedra is influenced greatly by snow runoff and summer storms. It is generally "out" during the very best late spring stonefly activity. In most years the river clears and fishes quite well by mid June. August clear waters run 150-250 c.f.s. Getting onto the river requires a little guidance.
