FLY FISHING

Fly fishing in Colorado is an adventure you'll always remember. Outwest Guides serves up some of the best fishing in Colorado, with unforgettable views, streams, and guides. Our fly fishing instructors put you onto a wide variety of trout species: rainbow trout; cutthroat trout; German brown trout; and brook trout.

Outwest Guides is known for our top quality professional guides who specialize in giving first-class instruction for beginning fly-fishers. Our guides start from the ground up, teaching you solid fundamentals so that you will have success fishing on your own.

Your fishing options are wide open at Outwest Guides, with wade, float, and overnight trips; full and half-day (recommended for beginners) to float fishing excursions on the Roaring Fork and Colorado rivers. Or you can book an overnight pack trip into the mountains for high-country lake and small stream fishing.

Marble offers exciting fishing. Few rivers can offer the opportunity to catch all four major trout species in one day of fishing. We call it the “Colorado Slam”—netting a brook trout, German brown trout, rainbow trout, and cutthroat trout all in the same day!  Several of our clients have done it, and many more have had a great time trying!

We recommend wade trips for beginning fly-fishers, Youʼll learn dry fly fishing and nymph fishing, the basic fly-fishing knots, hooking and playing a trout, the catch and release ethic, and basic entomology— how to choose a fly to match the hatch.

Our float trips, recommended for more advanced anglers, are a great way to see the Roaring Fork and Colorado rivers, as well as hook into some big, strong trout!

Our overnight lake and stream trips are an unforgettable mountain adventure! Accessible by horseback, or as a hiking trip, our guests arrive to a fully set up and stocked wilderness camp. Our guides cook and clean, teach and guide, tell stories, and pass on the know-how that leads so many urban dwellers back to the mountains again and again. At Outwest Guides, we'll take good care of you, so you can take good care of yourself!
