For those who live to fish.
An outfitter for those passionate about fly fishing, Trout Trickers is all about putting you where the fish are. Owner Pete Mott has earned a reputation as one of the Vail Valley’s most well-known and respected fly fishing guides with 30 years of guiding experience rowing clients more than 22,000 miles on the river. ALL our senior guides are seasoned veterans with 10 plus years on the water and it’s this intimate knowledge that fuels our single-minded passion for ensuring client success. We specialize in quality, not quantity, and we will show up early or stay late to make your trip the ultimate angling experience. Serving Vail, Colorado and the Eagle & Roaring Fork valley’s.
Float trips are our most popular trip and for good reasons. Beginner anglers can easily learn the basics of fly fishing from the comfort of a drift boat. Advanced anglers appreciate the ability to cover many more “miles of mouths” than would typically be accessible to a wade fisherman in a day. Our guided float trips also allows access to fish through private properties that are unaccessible on foot. Generally our floats are on the colorful Colorado River or the mighty Roaring Fork River. The Eagle River in the Vail Valley and the North Platte River in Wyoming are also available seasonally. All floats are conducted in comfortable hard-bottom drift boats or when appropriate, inflatable fishing rafts.
Wade fishing is a great way to experience our local rivers, especially some of the smaller drainages and to access areas the boats cannot. Wade fishing offers anglers a great interaction with the guide and an ability to learn and concentrate on fly fishing techniques or a particular stretch of river. Wading is a great option for anglers looking to hone their skills with a professional guide while stalking wild trout. The primary rivers we wade are Gore Creek and the Eagle River in the Vail Valley, but we also have access to the Roaring Fork and Colorado Rivers, and Freemont Canyon on the North Platte River in Wyoming.
Word on the stream
