It is important to be prepared for your Colorado fly fishing adventure. Knowing what to bring, where the location of your take off is, if you need a fishing license, is essential to a successful fishing trip. Here are some answers to common questions we get asked on a daily basis.
Colorado serves as the perfect place for year round fishing and seasonal hatches. Catches vary by season, with Rainbows and Cutthroats biting in the spring and Browns and a freshwater salmon in the fall. Even the winter months can turn up some great catches. When planning for the day of your trip, the earlier you get started your fishing excursion, the better!
Our guide will take you out on the Colorado River near Kremmling, CO for your trip. Hoping to take a trip on another river? Give us a call and we will check on availability for a custom trip.
We cannot guarantee that you will catch fish. Fly fishing is very technical, and occasionally a first-timer will catch a fish. Sometimes it takes multiple trips to make your first catch. It is all dependent on how quickly you pick up the skills, when you take your trip and the flies you use. We pay close attention to what's currently biting, the "hot-spots" for the river and the flies that are working in any given season.
All gear, including flies, will be provided. We suggest that you bring a camera, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and raingear. You also should wear shoes that you don't mind getting way and that will stay on your feet.
We do not restrict our guests by age. Everyone is different, but generally kids are ready to learn between ages 8 and 10 years old. Kids under 16 should be accompanied by an adult.
Gratuity is not a requirement, but it is greatly appreciated by our guides. We recommend 20% of the trip cost, keeping in mind that this should increase with group size and client satisfaction.
You might've heard the popular Colorado phrase, "If you don't like the weather, wait 10 minutes." Colorado's weather changes frequently, and the fish will be biting regardless! We are unlikely to cancel a trip due to weather, however, we will do our best to make sure that you are prepared for any weather that might come up during your trip.
Guests over the age of 16 will need to provide a valid Colorado Fishing License. Colorado Fishing Licenses can be purchased online with Colorado Parks & Wildlife, Take Me Fishing and/or at most outdoors stores.
