Summer is here and the time is right for Fly fishing!  Call us for update info 970-845-8090

This whole summer has been a mixed bag of weather and fishing conditions, fortunately we are not experiencing any fires.  We are expecting some fair amounts of cooler temperatures much needed moisture beginning about August 18th for a few days.  The Glenwood canyon has finally reopened after being closed for a few weeks due to mud slides.  The Colorado is getting a good influx of cold water from the Blue river, which is helping the fishing from Pumphouse downstream to Catamount.  We are still asking for anglers to be off the Eagle river downstream of Wolcott by around 12:00pm.   Water temperature are getting up into the upper 60’s on the lower Eagle. Walk/wade and float trips are going out every day.  Wether you are a true novice or a seasoned angler our staff has all the gear and advise to help get you out on the water. Our friendly and knowledgeable guide staff has over 300 years combined experience on local waters. We are entering our 11th. years as the host outfitters of the orvis 1 and 2 day Fly Fishing schools.  We are also pleased to have our Wednesday kids camps back for 2021.
