Exclusive Eagle River fly fishing trips

We offer the best Colorado Private Water Fly Fishing Trips in the Vail Valley. With exclusive access to nearly 3 miles of private fly fishing water on the Eagle River, you can have the river all to yourself!

Benefits Of Our Private Water

Having the ability to guide on private water allows us to show anglers beautiful pieces of water that anglers normally do not have access to. We have our own private water section right outside our door that provides some of the best Fly Fishing in on the Eagle River. If you wish to fish for multiple days, we can accommodate your request by arranging accommodations close to the watershed. Multi-day private water trips are a fun adventure that allow anglers to take advantage of multiple private sections of river that you might not get to see in one day. It is a relaxing way to spend a few days on the river searching for trophy trout that call these areas home.

Your Own Private River

The benefit to booking a trip on Private water is that you & your group will be the only anglers on that stretch of river. This means there is no rush out the door to try and secure your spot on any one section of river. We are free to stop for lunch without the worry of another group sliding into our spot and start fishing.  Our Private Water Fly Fishing Trips are perfect for novice anglers as well as experienced anglers who are looking for a little more privacy on the river.

Less Pressure On The Fish

Private water is also less pressured, meaning that fish see fewer anglers hence fewer flies drifting by their face. This does not mean that you will catch a fish on every cast; you will still need a good drift and presentation to fool a trout.

Trophy Trout Opportunities

Many of our private water leases are home to large Trout that will put your wits and patience to the test. Be prepared for a fierce battle of tug o war with some of these large private water fish.  Private water trips are highly sought after therefore these trips must be booked in advance. Contact us at anytime for more information and we will create an excellent Private Water Fly Fishing Trip for you and your guests.

What To Expect

Pickup 

Regardless of the trip you choose to do, our guides will pick you up at your location or you can meet us at our private cabin in Wolcott, CO. 

Catch & Release

During the Summer months we encourage an early start so we can be on the water before it gets too warm. This also can provide some excellent dry fly fishing opportunities. Many of the trout on our private water grow very large and it is not uncommon to hook them. Be prepared for an incredible battle and allow our guides to coach you to victory. All fish that are caught must be released after capturing the moment on camera. All photos taken will be shared with you via email at the end of the day so you can brag about your trophy.

Fishing Day

Full day wade & float trips include a riverside lunch complete with table and chairs. Our guides also have a cooler full of ice cold beverages for your convenience as well as snacks to munch on during your trip.  

Wrap Up

After a fantastic private water trip our guides will return you to your location. Take a peak at our fly fishing photo gallery to see some the Colorado Trout you can expect to catch.  If you have any time restraints please inform us upon booking so we can keep you on schedule. We look forward to showcasing our excellent private water fly fishing.
