Doug Walker discovered his passion for fly fishing in the early 80s, out of high school, when his mom gave him his first real fly rod. The rod was a Powell 6wt., which he still has today. Doug began guiding for Chuck Rizuto on the San Juan River in the 90s while working at Purgatory Ski Resort after college. During that time, he began his fire service career with Durango Fire and Farmington Fire Department. Doug retired as a captain from FFD after serving his community for 20 years. Following retirement, he continued to fish, purchased a drift boat of his own, and established Just Drifting, LLC. Doug enjoys taking folks on guided trips and sharing his knowledge about the wonderful San Juan River and its amazing fish.
