Vail Valley & Streams

Minturn Anglers offers a wide variety of fly fishing experiences. The rivers we fish include some of the most highly rated and sought after fishing destinations, as well as those less well known but equally as productive. Dependent on conditions, and time of year, our rivers can be floated or waded and customized to your individual requirements. While there are a wide-range of trip options, the one constant is spending a day in a spectacular outdoor environment, catching wild mountain trout.
