Four Day Wilderness Fishing Trips
These trips are designed for adventurous fly-fisherman and those wanting to fish some of the most remote wilderness streams and lakes in the lower 48. Guests should be prepared for camping in comfortable wall tent camps, 8-15 miles into the Flat Tops Wilderness Area. It is not uncommon for fisherman to go all four days, seeing few other fishermen outside of their group.
These trips include a fishing guide, transportation by 4×4 for the duration of the trip, and well equipped camps. Meals are prepped “wilderness style” with open fire cooking and dutch oven cooking mixed in.
Folks in decent physical shape can expect to fish a mix of streams, valley pools, and alpine trophy cutthroat lakes. Some of these high-elevation lakes are rarely fished by other humans. Guests with more limited fitness still have great access to endless streams, small valley lakes and one beautiful alpine cutthroat reservoir.
This trip is a 4×4 (Polaris Ranger and/or Jeep) based trip. If you are interested in a multi-day horseback fishing trip, consider booking consecutive Day Trips. These trips are conducted out of our ranch into the Flat Tops Wilderness Area, via horses and mules.
4 Day trips start at $1,500 per person with a 2 person minimum.
*Price includes guide, three meals a day, drinks (excluding alcohol), and all fly fishing gear. Price does not include fishing license or guide tip (typically 10-20%). Please purchase license before arrival.
*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, the kind of place that no longer exists closer to the ski towns.
