March Midge Madness Special

March fly fishing in Colorado is arguably one the best fly fishing months of the entire year. Daytime temps in the mid 50’s are not uncommon and fly fishing opportunities can be epic with the first big hatches of midges and blue wing olives. Get the rust off your favorite fly rod and float with us through the trout filled pockets of the gold medal Roaring Fork River or the lower Colorado River. (Our guides are also available for half-day walk-n-wade trips on Vail’s Gore Creek or the local’s favorite Eagle River.)

We are offering a “March Midge Madness” full day float special at 10% below our normal rate on any trip booked now through April 15th. Our floats always include an iced cooler stocked with water, assorted beverages, and a hot lunch of wild game stew, Bison chili or similar.

Give us a call to book your March fly fishing trip in Colorado and take advantage of this prime time special!

Voluntary fishing closure on 2 of our favorite rivers

EAGLE, Colo. – Due to warm water temperatures and low stream flows, Colorado Parks and Wildlife is asking anglers to voluntarily avoid fishing after 12 p.m. on sections of the Eagle and Roaring Fork rivers beginning Sat., July 24.

The specific closure sections are:
Eagle River: Wolcott (Highway 131 Bridge) downstream to the Colorado River (13 miles)
Roaring Fork River: Carbondale (Highway 133 Bridge) downstream to the Colorado River (25 miles)
“Both rivers have been exceeding 71 degrees Fahrenheit consistently for the last several days and isolated rain showers haven’t provided much relief,” said CPW Aquatic Biologist Kendall Bakich. “Anglers fishing in these reaches have reported sportfish mortalities and, in the case of the lower Roaring Fork, mudslides have muddied the waters from the Crystal River tributary and contributed to fish stress in the hottest section of the Roaring Fork.”

Note to anglers: the Colorado River downstream of these closure sections continues to have exceedingly high water temperatures and remains under voluntary closures. The section from Red Dirt Creek to Rifle is under a full-day voluntary closure and the section upstream of Red Dirt Creek to State Bridge has a voluntary closure after noon. CPW is also continuing to monitor conditions in other waters, and anticipates a possible fishing closure on the Crystal River in the immediate future.

Anglers should be aware that most of the major rivers on Colorado’s Western Slope are experiencing adverse conditions heading into the hottest days of summer. Follow the Leave No Trace Principle to “Know Before You Go” to the West Slope this summer and check out conditions related to mandatory and voluntary fishing closures:
