Guided Fly Fishing

Want_to_see_package_for_fishing_tirpsYour fly fishing adventure begins with the small streams and high mountain lakes of Rocky Mountain National Park, or the larger Big Thompson River. 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 fly casting 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 4 or 6 hour morning trips or the 2 hour evening hatch trip, 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.

2 Hour Trip NA $199 $249 $285

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 trip, call (970) 586-2877.  Email us at: [email protected]

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 or (720) 988-4212.
