Advantages of Summer Fly Fishing

Main Ranch Valley - 1Fly fishing can be fantastic at any time of the year but especially during the summer. After a long, cold winter, it is time to get out on the river without snow or the frigid temperatures. Insects have also returned in droves which makes Estes Park fly fishing adventures all the more fun! With natural and artificial insects, fly fishing during the summer is much more advantageous for the anglers!

Plentiful Food and Good Weather

Not only are the insects plentiful but the weather has improved significantly. Normal fly fishing gear will do for those that have been bundling up for the frigid waters. While you may have to later on the bug spray to keep from being mosquito-lunch, the increased number of bugs can be fantastic for anglers. After long winters it is time for fish of all kinds to increase their food intake. The added insect consumption will make your insect-like flies fair game for all of the hungry fish in the river.

Get The Kids Involved

Summer is also the perfect time to involve your family (young and old) in a favorite pastime. Summer fly fishing is a fantastic way to entice children outdoors during their summer vacation. Estes Park fly fishing creates the perfect backdrop of beauty to teach children the importance of preserving nature for future generations. Estes Park is also home to gorgeous hiking and camping so your family can get away from the hustle and bustle of city-life to relax.
