It’s almost here – opening day for trips with Fly Fishing Colorado for 2017! In order to get prepared for fly fishing in Colorado, there are a few things you need to do. If you are hoping to take a trip with Fly Fishing Colorado, pick out a date to start planning your adventure. The date you travel might have a lot to do with how your adventure goes. This includes checking the weather and even the destination for any issues or any highlights that may be important to your trip such as traffic or closed roads.
Once you pick a date, and you have a good group or even a single adventure planned; it’s time to book your trip. Along with weather, location is a huge factor. You can go somewhere like Fairplay, Colorado, where fly fishing is available, but there isn’t really much going on in Fairplay. Or you can choose a location like beautiful Granite, Colorado and be immersed in one of the most scenic views ever! Location is also important when it comes to water levels which greatly affects fishing in general so that is also another thing to be aware of.
Check out all of the trips offered by all companies. Some may be a great price, but the services may not be what you are looking for. Others may be a pretty penny, but it will be the best fly fishing trip you can get. The less expensive trips will require you to have your own gear, including rods, reels, lines and waders. Not to mention dry-fit gear if it’s cold or cool gear if it’s hot. More expensive trips will have most gear provided with the exception of things like sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, water bottle, change of clothes, and maybe a change of shoes.
And, last but not least, hatches! Take a look at what bugs are hatching to ensure you get your pick of the critters. It’s not always the bigger the bug the bigger the catch but it could be a possibility. There are location hatch calendars that can be found and can be quite helpful for your trip. If you are lucky enough to get a guided trip your guide could also be a huge resource to hatching in the area.
