48.0 @ Glenwood Mid day
7 of 10 Above Carbondale
9 of 10 Below Carbondale
The Roaring Fork is one of the most productive winter freestone fisheries in Colorado. A great deal of open water and warmer temperatures make for a longer fishing day this time of year. The section through Glenwood Springs is a fantastic "Gold Medal" fishery. We are wading and floating the Fork. Fishing for very large Browns and Rainbows that are holding in the deeper, slower runs with Nymphs and the mid day dry/dropper rig. The large "Dirty" Midge and Blue Winged Olives are hatching now starting mid day. The Streamer bite is also on!. We also guide the Division of Wildlife leases of the Frying Pan River above Basalt, which is arguably the most famous river in Colorado. Both the upper an lower Fork are fishing very good right now! We are floating the fork from Carbondale to Glenwood right now! Avoid the floaters by wading up river of Carbondale.

"I want to thank Jeff Lyon, my instructor through the Orvis program out of Edwards, CO. What a solid start I have to a lifetime of fly fishing! Not only was the course and his instruction technically beneficial, but we spent a majority of our time practicing various techniques while on the water. Needless to say, I've come back to St. Louis eager to join experienced fly fishermen on upcoming outings and I am no longer anxious about being new to the sport. It is evident to me that the knowledge gained through the Orvis school is beneficial to anyone, no matter their experience level.
"First of all I would like to thank Jeff for all his expertise and patience with me and my buddy. I'm sure we were a handful at times with our witty comments and bickering at each other, but we were having such a good time with Jeff we felt that he was one of the guys.
"FFO, We really had a great time and Jodi is really hooked on fishing now. Thanks for your patience with us – we had a wonderful experience. Now, I am looking forward to another FLOAT TRIP – with you, of course! If my Father comes to town – I’ll be calling to book a float – location based on your recommendation. Thanks again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "
"We were a four boat party on a float trip on the Colorado River. All the guides were knowledgeable, personable, and tried their best to make the fish take the fly. Yes the fishing was slow but that's fishing and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We would certainly recommend this outfitter. The staff runs a great shop. Great shop and people."
I'm writing to commend one of your guides, Kevin Wildgen, for his excellent customer service and guiding skills. The fishing trip was a surprise birthday present from my parents. He was extremely patient with my rusty fishing skills, and he provided me expert instruction while helping me catch some nice trout. I learned a great deal on this trip and had a fun, relaxing time in the process, everything you'd expect from a top-notch guide. I'll use your services again and tell everyone I know to do the same.
Regards, Todd C.
"FFO runs a first rate shop and is always a source of great information. As a result, I recently purchased a TLS Rod from him and will soon be adding a reel."
