Vail Fly Fishing Guide Service
Vail Fly Fishing without the Guesswork
“Gone fishing” with a Minturn Anglers fly fishing guide is a signal that you’re looking for an unforgettable fishing experience. The Vail Valley of Colorado boasts miles of Gold Medal water in the Blue River, Colorado River, Eagle River, and Gore Creek. Whether you are a beginner or an old hand at fly fishing, you will appreciate the way our experienced fishing guides lead you to the best stretch of trout-rich waters and work with you to make the trip a success.
Vail offers the full range of trout fishing from wading in mountain streams to floating on the larger rivers. Our Vail fly fishing guide service will help you make the most of your time on the water. We will even make sure you have all the right tackle, flies and other gear.
Walk and Wade
No matter what time of year, wade fishing is our most popular guided service. Even if you already have your favorite spot on the Blue River, Colorado or any other river, our guides can show you hidden treasure spots to renew your enthusiasm for trout. If you’re new to the area, ask the guides to tell you about all the places you can explore over the coming seasons.
Whether you are looking for a 4-hour getaway after work or a full day split between two locations, our guides will make sure the trip is worth it. Colorado abounds in great public fishing spots. However, we do have access to private waters. The Vail Rod and Gun Club on Eagle River is only three miles from our main fly shop. For an extra special experience, we can take you to private sections throughout these watersheds, perhaps flying in for the day or even overnight. Our Minturn Anglers guide will be right there, as close as you want, to coach you on technique and advise you on the best flies to attract those rainbows, brown and cutthroats.
The Eagle River, Colorado and Roaring Fork are all great for float fishing too. At Minturn Anglers, we have well-equipped, comfortable boats. Our fishing guides not only can teach you everything you need to know about fly fishing technique and fly selection, you can trust them to handle the boats like they pros they are. Whether you are in a high desert or sub alpine setting, you will enjoy the environment as much as the fishing. We know just how to show off the splendour of Colorado.
We’ll teach you how to read water by looking deep below the surface to discover where the ledge and drops are hiding those rainbows, browns and cutthroats. Side drifting nymphs usually works well. Our guides will be pleased to show you the tricks of fishing the deeper water. If you’re looking for a more thrilling challenge, ask to learn how to spey fish with a two handed rod. Brace yourself for a very different cast!
Our Vail fly fishing guides know the good, the bad and the magnificent about the waters of Vail Valley. They are at your service for a few hours or a few days, for a one time trip or as regular companions. Take advantage of the experience, expertise and, above all, the passion of our Minturn Anglers fishing guides.
