                                   Spring Fly fishing is excellent!  Call us for update info 970-845-8090

We are heading into some of the best fishing of the year! Late Winter and Spring are when the trout start to feed in earnest to put calories back on from the colder winter conditions. Longer days and warmer water temperatures trigger their metabolism’s into full feeding mode. Rainbow Trout are going into pre-spawn, they go into a state of near constant feeding to put on weight for the riggers of spawning. Great Dry fly and Streamer action right now!

This year is going to be especially good as there is more open water then in most years due to a relatively mild winter. The insect hatches are increasing as we start to see more larger Stoneflies and Blue Winged Olives begin to emerge.  We are offering 1/2 and Full day walk/wades and Float trips at our Winter discounted rates. Our friendly and VERY knowledgeable guide staff has over 300 years combined experience on local waters. Our Shop staff is just as friendly and Knowledgeable too. We are available on short notice 970-845-8090

 Shop Hours: Mon- Sat 9-6, Sundays: 9-3
