ESTES PARK, COLORADO
Join me this summer to experience the wonderful and amazing fly fishing opportunities that the Rocky Mountain west has to offer from a home base in Estes Park, Colorado!
We will be fly fishing for the native Greenback Cutthroat Trout, Colorado Cutthroat Trout, Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout on the many beautiful rivers and streams in the greater Rocky Mountain National Park area.
You will have the opportunity to fly fish on the Big Thompson River which has a fantastic meadow section and great hatches with Elk wandering about, the Fall River with the amazingly beautiful Roaring River's “Alluvial Fan" above, the St. Vrain River where famed author John Gierach fishes on occasion, the headwaters of the Colorado River that runs through a alpine marsh and has Moose and Elk walking about and a few alpine lakes that hold some Native Greenback Cutthroat Trout as well.
There is a possibility of seeing Elk, Moose, Bighorn Sheep, Antelope, Bald Eagles, Swans, Herons and a number of other critters throughout the week.
Estes Park itself is a wonderful tourist town catering to interests including the outdoors, arts, music, culinary offerings and more!
I am pleased to be able to share a once in a lifetime fly fishing experience with you all from a beautiful home with a fantastic chef and a great guide service to make the week an experience you will hopefully talk about for years to come.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to book this trip with me.
