We have been able to add some snow to our snowpack the last couple weeks, which is a blessing if we want happy, healthy fish this summer.  The week ahead looks like it’s going to be warm and sunny.  Warmer spring temperatures have arrived so conditions should be excellent as water temps increase.  A lot of water has opened up on the Eagle, Roaring Fork and Colorado.  We have started floating both the Roaring Fork and the Colorado rivers.  As the days get longer so will the window of quality fishing.  March and April are the peak of some fantastic Spring fishing.  More surface action on Midges and Blue Wings and the Streamer bite starts to get more aggressive. We have guides available on short notice.  Our current shop hours are 7-days-a-week 9-5.  For more information please feel free to call our helpful staff at 970-845-8090

Shop Hours: 7 days a week 9:00 – 5:00 .
