Colorado Fly Fishing

August 2014


The water is holding at higher than normal flows for this time of year. We have been getting some mud with the recent storms but seems to clear quickly. At least that's our story, and we'll stick to it for now.

The Colorado River  and Roaring Fork River are both fishing well even with the occasional mdu slug. You should also make sure you have some stoneflies in your arsenal.

Call us before you come up for the most up-to-date conditions.

Check out our Closeouts! We just added some Fishpond deals, Sage Rods and deals on select Patagonia wading boots.

Contact us at either shop for the most current reports or for more details see our Roaring Fork Valley River Flow information page. We are also home to the 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.
