Where We Fish on Guided Fly Fishing Trips

Lower Big Thompson River

The lower Big Thompson River is a world class trout stream situated downstream from Lake Estes and provides a blue ribbon tailwater fishery where wild brown and rainbow trout grow large with common catches between 12-16" while fish over 20" commonly hit the net.

The Big Thompson River below Lake Estes is nearly a year-round fishery providing cold water in the dog days of summer to consistent temperatures near the dam during the doldrums of mid-winter. Exceptional fishing can be experienced any day of the year depending on conditions.

Rocky Mountain National Park

During the late spring through fall, we spend most of our time fly fishing in Rocky Mountain National Park. The pristine trout habitat in the park supports abundant populations of multiple species and is perfect for those anglers who want to fish beneath towering mountain peaks with stunning views in every direction.

From alpine lakes to tiny streams you can jump across, the park offers a wide variety of different places to fish and an abundance of wild trout willing to eat dry flies. It's the quintessential colorado fly fishing experience and should be on every angler's bucket list!
