The Colorado Angler’s guides are the best in the business and highly experienced on rivers such as The Blue River, The Arkansas River, The Colorado River, The Eagle River, and The South Platte River.
Under the watchful eye and tutelage of our guides, everyone from the most experienced anglers to the first-time fisherman is sure to get into fish and learn the most effective techniques to target and catch trout consistently. From the small water of the Middle Fork of The South Platte, and upper Arkansas to the bigger water of The Colorado River you are sure to create memories of a lifetime on your guided fly fishing wade trip with The Colorado Angler.
Both half and full day trips generally begin at the shop at 7:30 am. We are flexible and are happy to adjust start times and locations based on your schedule. Half-day trips are just that and generally return by 1 pm, full-day trips are usually back by 4:30 pm though times may be adjusted based on travel time. Each trip is customized to the experience and ability of the anglers in your group, as well as to their personal preferences. All trips are private, for you and your group only. Here at The Colorado Angler, we are resolute in our desire to provide you with the best-guided fly fishing experience possible, both from the perspective of catching fish and from enjoying your river experience to the fullest. We never forget that we are fishing because it is fun!
Wade trips are a flexible option; we can fish small mountain streams such as the upper Arkansas, or larger freestones such as the upper Colorado River. If slowly wading a meandering meadow stream is your preference then the Middle Fork of The South Platte may be just the place for you. While you will not cover the miles of river available on a float, you will have the opportunity to fish at your own pace. Wading gives you the opportunity to really work a spot and use all your senses to target and land specific fish.
All of our trips include fishing gear, waders if necessary, and terminal tackle. If you have your own gear please bring it. Flies, license, and gratuity are not included in the price of the trip.
We welcome your trip request using the link below, however, we would prefer to have a conversation with you regarding your expectations to make your day idyllic. Please call us anytime to set up your wade trip.
