The lands of the Southern Ute are important to Navajo Dam as most of the water flowing into the reservior from Colorado goes through Southern Ute land.  Tribal Headquarters is in Ignacio, CO where there is a beautiful new Casino and a beautiful new museum (pending).  To get to Ignacio from Float 'N Fish follow NM 511 to the north side of the dam to the Colorado border where the highway is renamed CO 172.  Ignacio is a few miles north of the Colorado border.
