Colorado Fly Fishing

April 2014



BWOs, Midges and a few Caddis. Hatches on the Colorado, Roaring Fork Rivers, and Frying Pan Rivers have been excellent!

Spring fishing is here. Rainbow trout are now spawning. Look for spawning reds and avoid wading through them and otherwise disturbing those fish. Creek Closures begin on March 15.  South Canyon Boat ramp is open as are other valley ramps.

Skiing is winding down, and the crowds are gone. Come to the Roaring Fork Valley to visit us, you will be glad you did!

Check out Closeouts! We still have some Sage rods on there, as well as Simms waders.

Contact us at either shop for the most current reports or for more details see our Roaring Fork Valley Fishing Report.

Fly Fishing Guide Trips

Roaring Fork Anglers, Alpine Angling and our select guides have been chosen Best Local Guide Service since 2004. Since 1980 we’ve done Colorado Fly Fishing Guide Trips on Roaring Fork Valley waters and beyond.

From Fly Fishing in Aspen to Fly Fishing in Rifle, We also hold outfitting permits for float and wade fishing on the Roaring Fork River, upper and lower Colorado River & Eagle River. We also offer wade fishing on both the Frying Pan River and the Crystal River, and have access to several private ranches and spring creeks that are capable of producing trophy trout.

Check out our Roaring Fork Valley Fly Fishing Report for recent activity of fish and bugs.

With the help of a long time outfitter of the Gunnison Gorge, we are now booking three-day/two-night fly-fishing trips on the ‘Gunnie’ for 2014.
