Wilderness Fly Fishing Expeditions

Wilderness Fly Fishing Expeditions with Colorado Outfitters

Our pack-in wilderness fly fishing expeditions provide access to some of Colorado's finest back country fishing.  We offer remote camps in several locations all providing comfortable accommodations. Our camps are set with wall tents, woodstoves, cots and foam pads (at times, we also use Cabela's Alaknak and Guide Series Tents which offer similar comfort). We use solar showers with an enclosure to enable clients who wish to clean up after enjoying a day riding and fishing the back country. All pack-in trips are done on horse back with mule strings. Our camps are off the beaten path and anywhere from a two to five hour horse back ride. Based on this, we recommend trips with a minimum of three days of fishing plus one day packing in and one day packing out. For guided trips, we use packable boats which further enhance the fishing and result in more fish in your net. You can expect to catch brook trout and cutthroats typically ranging from ten to sixteen inches with occasional bigger cutthroats approaching twenty inches. Our most remote camp offers fishing five different lakes all within an approximate 30 minute walk or horseback ride. Additional lakes can also be accessed from here within an hours horseback ride of the camp.

Guided trips offer three meals a day starting out with fresh brewed coffee, juice and a hearty breakfast (i.e. bacon/eggs or pancakes/sausage, etc..). Lunch will generally be a sack lunch with sandwiches, fresh fruit and snacks. At dinner, clients can look forward to meals like barbecued chicken, mashed potatoes and a vegetable or salad with some home baked cookies for desert! Camp fires are the norm most evenings (unless there is a fire ban). If desired, we will also customize a menu to your liking.

We also offer unguided pack-in trips too for those who are experienced fisherman and comfortable in the back country on their own. For these trips, clients will be expected to bring their own meals, cut their own firewood and purify their own water. We will certainly also provide insight on what flies are working best and which lakes are fishing well at the time. Once again, we strongly do encourage catch and release especially on bigger fish as this is what helps keep the fishing exceptional for the future.

"I had a great time fishing at Colorado Outfitters last summer! We did lake fishing the first day where I was catching cutthroats in the 14-16 inch range and the next day we fished some fast action, small river water catching brookies in the 10-12 inch range on dry flies! While I had fished with my guide, Bob Terwilliger before in his previous guiding job, this was my first time here. Needless to say, I'll be back as fishing, scenery and horses were great!"
