Gunnison Guided Fly Fishing Trips

Our highly skilled fly fishing guides float, wade, hike and drift the Gunnison Valley year-round to stay in tune with where the trout are biting, and what they are eating.

We pair our guests with the right guide to match your fishing style. Whether you are looking for a fly fishing trip for beginners, or a "canyon crawl" for the expert seeking a more technical challenge, our guides pay attention to what you want from your time on the water.

There are hundreds of ways to have fun fly fishing the Gunnison Valley. A long float down the Gunnison River for trophy trout is something every flyfisher should experience. We also love to take folks up to high mountain creeks with outsized fish that slurp dry flys with reckless abandon. If you are in Gunnison during the Fall, the Kokanee salmon run is something you won't want to miss. Let us teach you how to catch them like a pro.

A one-on-one guided wade is a great way to reduce the learning curve, improve your cast, and learn how to find fish in any river. Our guides take the time to educate guests about why one area of the river is more likely to hold feeding fish than another. We discuss why we choose a certain fly, and how to use each fly effectively. Our goal is to not only help you catch fish today, but to catch more fish in the future.
