Colorado Fly Fishing
We have finally moved into some cooler, icier weather, the snow is flying but the action is holding strong! The Roaring Fork River is in pretty good shape but we have some low flows. The Frying Pan River is running at 90 cfs, and seeing occasional midge hatches. The Crystal River has cleared, and the Colorado River is green.
Be careful when wading and when you encounter icy banks, not a good time to get baptised. Keep a change of clothes in the vehicle. They might come in handy!
While you are here, take a moment to look at our Brown Trout Monday Specials!
Give us a call before coming up to check current conditions. We can't tell you what rock to stand on but we can steer you to the most fishable water.
Contact us at either shop for the most current reports or for more details see our Roaring Fork Valley Fishing Report.
If you are planning a fishing trip out in Colorado, you can purchase your license online from Colorado Parks & Wildlife.
Fly Fishing Guide Trips
Roaring Fork Anglers, Alpine Angling and our select guides have been chosen best Guide Service 9 times by the readers of the Glenwood Post Independent.
From fly fishing in Aspen to fly fishing in Rifle, we’ve been doing Colorado Fly Fishing Guide Trips on these waters since 1980 and hold outfitting permits for float and wade fishing on the Roaring Fork River, Eagle River and upper and lower Colorado 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.
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.
For accurate, up-to-date conditions check the Fishing Report, our Hatch Chart and River Flows.

Dustin Harcourt seems to be working on a new nickname these days. The most trout, the biggest trouts and "other" species. Sheesh. Read More...
