Fly fishing in Colorado’s wilderness is an experience like none other; it will provide memories that you’ll be talking about for the rest of your life. If you’re looking for world-class guided fly fishing and float trips, or just to be exposed to an art form that you’ve only seen in the movies, we have the trip for you. Colorado is a destination for many anglers and, at Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides, we offer a custom guided Colorado fly fishing trip to match your interest and experience level.

We’ll share with you the best fly fishing Colorado locations (around Denver, Boulder, and Estes Park) that combine a perfect blend of scenery, success, education, and enjoyment. Fly Fishing locations will be chosen based on participants’ desires, goals, abilities, and fitness levels. The goal of our guided fly fishing tours is to provide a safe, educational, uniquely Colorado experience not found in a guidebook. Our professional local guides, the best around, really make our trips unique, engaging, and educational.

We offer 4-hour trips, 8-hour trips, and multi-day fly fishing trips. Our 4-hour trips are designed to provide an introduction to the novice angler or offer up some local tips for the experienced angler. Our 8-hour trips offer greater access to more remote wilderness areas and available waters, providing more opportunities for success and a true backcountry experience. We can fish and float down the Colorado River on one of our custom-built wooden dories or our fully outfitted rafts. On these trips, we can target the once-extinct Greenback Cutthroat Trout while enjoying the spectacular beauty of Colorado wilderness.

For those wanting to take it to the next level, please try our amazing, supported multi-day trips. These trips include ‘fly fishing school’, accessing remote waters that offer both beauty and solitude, and the opportunity to catch the rare Greenback Cutthroat Trout or Browns in Colorado’s Front Range streams. Our trips are all-inclusive: exceptional local fishing guides, all necessary gear, transportation, and the most up-to-date fishing reports and information.
