Fly fishing in Colorado on private waters is strictly forbidden without proper consent. Unfortunately, some of the most gorgeous and successful locations are located on private property. Private water fishing can be one of the most relaxing experiences since it is incredibly quiet and exclusive. Thankfully Kirk’s Flyshop has the ability to bring their fishing parties to many different private water locations. This means that we offer some of the most exclusive locations for a Colorado fishing vacation!
