Backcountry Fly Fishing

Filed in Summer Day Tours by on May 8, 2017

Join us for an intimate fishing experience unlike anything you will find on the big rivers. Our fishing guides have been doing this for decades and they cherish our local fishing holes. After a short hike and some patience, you will discover the solitude of fishing in a remote stream under the stoic mountains of the Gore Range.


Small streams provide the angler with less intimidating wading so you can focus on fishing for brookies, browns, and native cutthroat trout. If you are new to fly fishing, our guides can show you the basics. If you are a seasoned “trout bum,” come explore the pools and riffles with us.
