Guided Fly Fishing Trips

Want to see package for fishing tirpsYour fly fishing adventure begins with the small streams and high mountain  lakes of Rocky Mountain National Park, the larger Big Thompson River, or the private waters of Sylvandale Ranch.  We offer "drive up" fishing where its a short walk to the water or we can hike farther distances and maybe not see another angler all day long.  We might catch Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Brookies and Cutthroat.  There is also an opportunity to catch the rare and endangered Greenback Cutthroat Trout which has been brought  back from the  brink of  extinction. 

These trips are perfect for the "never ever" fly fishing angler.  That's our specialty.  Our professional guides will teach you all about the equipment, give you a short basic flycasting lesson, talk about flies, lines, leaders, tippets, knots and give you a lesson in entomology, if you're interested.  We will teach you how to wade safely, how to read the water, find the fish and how to safely handle and release those beautiful wild trout.  We practice catch and release on all of our trips.  For the more experienced angler we can just fish, if that's what you are looking for.  This is a great way to get your children interested in a sport they can pursue for the rest of their lives, and for the older folks, just another day in paradise!

You can choose from 8, 6 or 4 hour trips, whichever will fit your schedule and will allow you enough time to fully learn and appreciate the joys of fly fishing.  To book a trip or to check availability call us at 970-586-2877.

Half-Day Trips (4 Hours)

A great way to get introduced to fly fishing is our 4 hour trip. If you are new to fly fishing or have not yet learned to fish small streams, we will spend the first part of the trip, on the river, learning the different casting techniques to present our fly to those intrepid trout. Then, we take that new knowledge and mix it with our local know-how of small stream fly fishing and try to catch a trout. If however, you already know how to cast then we will spend all our time showing you how to catch trout.  To book your tirp, call 970-586-2877.

4 Hour Trip $150 $210 $295 $95

Six Hour Trips

Want more time on the stream but don't have the time for an all day trip. This is the trip for you. Also, if the 4 hour trip that you signed up for is going too good to stop, just talk to your guide and we'll stay on the stream longer at a pro-rated rate.  To book your trip, call 970-586-2877.

RATES 1 PERSON 2 PEOPLE 3 PEOPLE EACH ADDITIONAL PERSON
6 Hour Trip $200 $270 $360 $90

Full Day Trips

These trips really give us the time to offer you the true experience of fly fishing the area.  Option 1 is an all day hike to the high country of Rocky Mountain National Park where you will fly fish the high mountain lakes and streams for a variety of trout that may include the Greenback Cutthroat.  A second option is to fish a number of places in and around Rocky Mountain National Park and go for the GRAND SLAM.  This is where you try to catch a Rainbow, a Brook, a Brown and a Greenback all in one day.  To book your trip, call 970-586-2877.

Private Water Fishing

For those who want to catch really big fish we now have access to Sylvandale Ranch. These trips are a full 8 hours long with lunch and drink. We will need advanced notice to get you onto the property as they limit the number of people fishing.  To book your trip, call 970-586-2877.

Private Water Trips $325 $490

Multi-Day Trips

For a real adventure, how about backpacking into a remote high mountain lake in Rocky Mountain National Park. Here you will help set up camp, cook and spend your time experiencing nature while fly fishing for trout. This is my passion, getting away from the crowds, taking on the elements and catching trout with my friends. These trips require you to be in very good shape, have experience in outdoor camping, and not let a little rain or snow spoil your trip. You will also need to rent or bring your own camping and fishing equipment.  Call 970-586-2877.

RATES 1 PERSON 2 PEOPLE 3 PEOPLE EACH ADDITIONAL PERSON
Multi-Day Trips $240/DAY $360/DAY $450/DAY 4th person $500
