Fly Fishing: Boulder Lakes (1/2 day)
Explore Boulder’s local lakes and waterways and cast for warm water fish such as sunfish, bluegill, and bass.
Explore Boulder’s local lakes and waterways and cast for warm water fish such as sunfish, bluegill, and bass. We’ll have a brief refresher on casting and setting a hook without moving water, then set out for the lakes under a spectacular Rocky Mountain backdrop. While being close to the city, Boulder’s lakes and ponds feel a world removed as they are set in the rural plains of East and North Boulder. This is a great opportunity to see the Boulder lakes and rural area the way that our guides and locals do.
Itinerary: The exact times of the ½ day trip will be determined after sign-up and arranged directly with Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides. Half-day trips usually start around 7:30 am or 1:00 pm and include 3-4 hours of fishing. We have fly fishing departure locations from Denver, Golden, Boulder, and Estes Park Colorado. Our guide will pick you up at your Boulder Hotel or residence, alternatively you may meet us at our Boulder Offices. On the 5 to 20 minute drive to the fishing area we will go over basic safety information, questions that you may have and review our plan for the day. Once we arrive at the lakes our guides will quickly get you set up with the equipment needed, go over any instructions that you may need and get you on the fish to begin a wonderful day of fly fishing.
Included: The services of a professional angling or fly fishing guide, round-trip transportation between your Boulder hotel or our office and the fishing location, terminal tackle and equipment (Including flies, rod, reel, and booties/waders), bottled water and snacks (lunch is also included during full-day trips), and education about the local and natural history (including a library of Rocky Mountain flora and fauna).
Not included in our rates: Gratuities for your guide (while it is up to your discretion, the recommended gratuity is 15-20%), Colorado fishing license ($16.75 per day) or rod fee for private waters. We will secure private waters based on request, but for CO fishing license we will send a link to register online.
