We have been the valley’s premier year around guide service since 1992.  Trout fishing in the heart of ski country is a true four season sport.

Those who are in the know understand that winter fishing here in the Vail valley can be very productive.  Our geography allows us to travel just a few miles down valley to milder conditions that allow for great fishing.  As local anglers we  live to ski/ride in the mornings and fish in the afternoons.  We offer a wide range of fishing options and can tailor to your schedule.  We provide all the equipment you will need for the day in the price of our trips.

Trips for Summer 2015

Wade & Walk Fly Fishing Trips

 

We provide wade and walk fly fishing trips in Vail and Beaver Creek, Colorado.

Wade fishing is a great way for novice and expert anglers to enjoy the area’s bountiful waters. Our most      popular trip in the summer months, it affords fly fishermen a chance to thoroughly work waters with hundreds of native trout with an expert guide right by your side. Our Orvis Endorsed guide staff closely monitors river flows, water clarity and movement of bug hatches to put you where the fish are biting best.  Wade fishing gives you the option of fishing more than 1 river in a day. The options for wade trips are endless. Trout can be caught on wade trips throughout the year. While the   majority of our trips take place on the Eagle, Colorado, Frying Pan, Blue or Roaring Fork Rivers, many of our clients choose to explore other waters. Our guides love to grab a small light rod and introduce their clients to some of our small high mountain streams. The dry fly fishing and scenery is unbeatable, and crowds are non-existent

Our extremely knowledgeable and friendly Orvis guides will make sure that you have a great experience whether you are a beginner or a seasoned angler.  We provide all the equipment   necessary for you to be comfortable and safe.

Float Fly Fishing Trips

Join Fly Fishing Outfitters for a guided fly fishing trip in Vail or Beaver Creek, CO.  Only Orvis Endorsed guides in the Vail Valley.

Float fishing is one of the best ways to enjoy fly fishing while at the same time enjoying some of Colorado’s most magnificent scenery. Experiencing fly fishing from a boat can provide exciting opportunities to reach remote parts of the river not accessible on foot. We use the very best boats in the industry. Fiberglass drift boats provide the ultimate in comfort for our discriminating clients, while our self-bailing “super puma” rafts offer handling and safety features not found on normal rafts.  Our guide staff has over 275 years combined experience on local rivers, no other guide service can lay claim to that!

All of our guides are whitewater and first aid/CPR certified. They are committed to giving their clients a safe, scenic float regardless of the river. Colorado State Law requires that any person participating in a guided trip must wear a class 3 life jacket, no exceptions.
