Flat Tops Guided Fishing

Day Fishing Trips

We provide focused high country fishing trips in the wilderness area and private small stream fishing.

Our day trips are operated out of our ranch and pack-station. On our wilderness trips fishermen should expect to ride a minimum of 1.5 hrs each way. These rides take you through beautiful country to pristine lakes and alpine streams. The primary catch on our day trips is brook trout and cutthroats. Day trips include riding horses, a basic coffee/pastry breakfast, camp fire cooked lunch and a dedicated guide per 2-3 guests.

Day fishing trips are $225 per person with a 2 person minimum.
*Price includes guide, meals described in service description, drinks, and all fly fishing gear. Price does not include fishing license or guide tip (typically 10-20%). Please purchase license before arrival.

Summer Trip Gear List and Information

*Our ranch is located approximately one hour and twenty minutes from Vail, one hour from Eagle or Glenwood Springs. Because of our remoteness, we rarely run into other people (hikers, horseback riders, bikers, etc…) during our trips. Trips are in a truly pristine wilderness that no longer exists next to any of the ski towns.
