Wade and Walk Fly Fishing Trips

We provide wade and walk fly fishing trips in Vail and Beaver Creek, Colorado.

Wade fishing is a great way for novice and expert anglers to enjoy the area’s bountiful waters. Our most popular trip in the Summer months, it affords fly fishermen a chance to thoroughly work waters with hundreds of native trout with an expert guide right by your side. Our Orvis Endorsed guide staff closely monitors river flows, water clarity and movement of bug hatches to put you where the fish are biting best. Wade fishing gives you the option of fishing more than 1 river in a day.

The options for wade trips are endless. Trout can be caught on wade trips throughout the year. While the majority of our trips take place on the Eagle,Colorado, Frying Pan, Blue or Roaring Fork Rivers, many of our clients choose to explore other waters. Our guides love to grab a small light rod and introduce their clients to some of our small high mountain streams. The dry fly fishing and scenery is unbeatable, and crowds are non-existent.
