Overall Fly Fishing Status: Good pre run-off conditions

Discounted Winter guide rates available now!

We are in pre run-off conditions right now, meaning that the conditions are changing daily.  We have had awesome hatches of Blue Winged Olives and NOW the Mother’s day Caddis are popping on the roaring Fork and Eagle river!  Rule of thumb, if there are Blue Wings hatching then the streamer fishing should be good as well. We are heading into some of the best fishing conditions of the year for the next couple of months! We are also floating theEagle, Colorado and Roaring Fork rivers where there has been some great Streamer fishing the last few weeks.  We have guided have access to over 250 miles of Eagle River, Roaring Fork River, Colorado River, Frying Pan, Blue River and all of these rivers tributaries. The Gore Creek running through vail is incredible, but technical fishing. Plus, special access to private waters and lakes with Fly Fishing Outfitters.  Many people overlook the great opportunities for fly fishing this time of year, but the fishing can be amazing! With over 275 years combined guiding experience on local waters our Orvis guides can put you on the fish.

All of our Colorado fly fishing reports are updated from our guides. Who better to report on the fishing conditions than the guides that fish the waters daily
