Cole Glenn San Juan Anglers

Cole Glenn was born and raised in Woodland Park Colorado before relocating to Durango to attend Fort Lewis College.  He got his first trout fishing education while growing up on a ranch with trout ponds and many gold metal rivers in the area.
Cole graduated from Fort Lewis College with a Tourism Resort Management degree and spent some years working in the hospitality and resort industries. After attending a Fly Fishing Guide School he took a guide position at the shop, but soon became the general manager at The San Juan Angler.
He likes to spend his off time exploring backcountry streams, hunting for trophy trout on the Los Pinos River, as well as testing his metal on the mighty and challenging Animas River. He has a unique knowledge of the Southwest as he has called Durango home for the past 13 years. Cole demonstrates a deep passion for the sport and enjoys sharing those experiences with others.

Jim Cox, Western Rivers Conservancy

Jim Cox, Director of Donor Relations for Western Rivers Conservancy will make a presentation entitled “Sometimes To Save A River You Have To Buy It.”  WRC has been working to conserve and protect lands on more than 60 rivers in eight western states.  The presentation will focus on how WRC purchases riverlands across the West to protect and conserve vital river ecosystems and to provide compatible public access.  Included in the program is stunning photography of past and current projects including work on some of the most iconic fly fishing rivers across the West including Idaho’s Salmon River, Oregon’s John Day  and North Umpqua, the Yampa and Rio Grande in Colorado, the Madison River in Montana, California’s Klamath Rivers, and Washington’s Hoh River.  We will also chat about our work in Arizona to protect Fossil Creek and the East Verde.
