Guided Fly Fishing in Colorado
Colorado Skies Outfitters provides guided fly fishing trips throughout Colorado. As a guide service, we are strong proponents of public water and teaching anglers how to catch more fish in Colorado. For those seeking solitude, we can arrange for guided float fishing trips and wade fishing on over 40 private water destinations in Colorado. We also guide a number of warm water fly fishing trips each year where we target alternative species such as wiper, carp, and bass in the Denver area. Our valued partnerships with other Colorado guide services, and the proximity to quality trout water allows our guides to put you on the hottest fly fishing action all year long!
Guide Service Philosophy
We pride ourselves in being teachers of fly fishing who work diligently to increase your knowledge base, and improve your skills. Our primary goal after a day on the water with one of our professional Colorado fishing guides is to arm you with the knowledge and tools to catch more fish! We specialize in teaching you how to fish nymphs, dry flies, streamers, recognize river hatches, improve your casting, and have more fun on the water!
Our guided fly fishing trips are all inclusive. Guide fees cover all fly fishing equipment needed including; transportation (to most locations), lunch with full day trips, fly rods, fly reels, waders, boots, leaders, tippet, flies, etc. Not included in the trip price is a valid Colorado fishing license.
