Our guides are the reason we are celebrating 25 years in business .

Our Orvis Endorsed personable, knowledgeable, and professional guide staff are the most experienced in the Vail Valley with a combined 225 + years guiding on local waters.

Our guides closely monitors river flows, water clarity and movement of bug hatches to put you where the fish are biting best, which makes them the best teachers for any of our clinics and schools, but especially our Orvis fly fishing school!

Many of our guides have been with us over a decade and know the waters we fish like the back of their hand.

35+ guides on staff in the peak season; 15+ certified rowing guides for float trips.
