Vail and Beaver Creek fly fishing seasons are as follows with Fly Fishing Outfitters.
December-February: A great half day option(4 Hours) is wade trip on Gore Creek or the Eagle River Eagle. Full day options full day wade or float on the famed Roaring Fork or Colorado Rivers( below Glenwood Canyon). we also access many of the states best Tail water fisheries. Frying Pan, Blue and Yampa are three of the best tail waters in the area that offer very productive fishing for larger trout. Winter is a good time to fish some of these tail waters due to lack of crowds. The fish are hungry and the crowds are on the slopes instead of the rivers so it is an excellent time to catch a big one. Check availability of Winter Rates.
One of the best times to fish the Eagle valley as well as float the Roaring Fork and the Colorado rivers. Warmer daytime temps make a full day trip very comfortable and the fish are very active. A not to be missed time of year even after the mountain closes. Once the high water and mud come we move to smaller creeks, dam controlled tail waters and lakes in the region.
This is prime time, lots of Dry Fly action and we are wading and floating over 250 miles of great Colorado trout water. This is shorts and sandal season, warm summer afternoon lunches along the river. Great for the expert or complete novice.
Streamer season… that time of year for big Brown trout on large classic western rivers like the Colorado. This time of the year is great for fall colors, comfortable temps… big flies and big fish minus the busy nature of the summer months.
