Glenwood Springs Fly Fishing Guide


July 12th, 2021
We are open for business for both float and wade trips. The fishing has been fantastic on the Roaring Fork lately, but the Colorado River had a voluntary closure effective July 7th. The water temperatures are rising and we hope the upstream dams start their summer releases soon to help cooler the rivers down. You should be on the river right now. The river is alive with huge hatches of Caddis, Pale Moring Duns, Yellow Sallies, Baetis, Tricos and midges. One of my very favorite time to be on the river is right now. All of the above insects in nymph and dry flies, including big hoppers, patterns are the go to flies right now, along with streamers. Our fish are running BIG and 2 to 3 pound trout are not uncommon. Our Spring Creek trips are fishing well with lots of fish in the 2 to 3 pound range. If you are a novice or expert, get out and enjoy the moment now. It just doesn’t get any better than that. The weather is starting to warm up, but the river is still running in the mid 60’s degrees for the fish except for the Colorado River. Due to these temperatures we will discontinue our late evening trips, and will be on the water in the cooler part of the day.

A new honor for me, I was selected the 2019 “Best of the Rockies” Best Guide by Elevation Outdoor Magazine

There is a big difference when you say you are the best, and the community say “yes, you are the best”. This represents the 6 states of Utah, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, New Mexico, and Colorado, and it is considered the most prestigious award in the West. I was one of only two fishing guides, the others were climbing, snowboarding and rafting, hunting etc. with over 10,000 guides to choose from. This is quite a honor for me, and I hope you will come share my office with me, as it is special, plus my prices are still the lowest in the valley.
Why would you look elsewhere? Plus we just have fun.

Awesome story, Lets read more
