Colorado Fly Fishing


After a tremendous winter, we have moved to spring. We are experiencing some challenging fishing conditions but we still have options! The Frying Pan River, the upper Roaring Fork River, and a few local still waters are still available.  We are bound to get a few cold snaps that will allow the unintimidated angler to work the lower Roaring Fork and the Colorado River as well.



We are expecting good summer flows, Come up and join us!

Call us before you come up for the most up-to-date conditions.

Stop by one of our shops to stock up on the best flies for where you plan on fishing. For more details see our Roaring Fork Valley River Flow information page. We are also home to the Roaring Fork Valley Fishing Report.

Check out our Closeouts! We recently added some rods, reels and other gear to the page.

Fly Fishing Guide Trips

Did you know that Roaring Fork Anglers and our select guides have been chosen Best Local Guide Service every year since 2004? Since 1980 we have done Colorado Fly Fishing Guide Trips on Roaring Fork Valley waters and beyond.

From Fly Fishing in Aspen to Fly Fishing in Rifle, We also hold outfitting permits for float and wade fishing on the Roaring Fork River, upper and lower Colorado River & Eagle River. We also offer wade fishing on both the Frying Pan River and the Crystal River, and have access to several private ranches and spring creeks that are capable of producing trophy trout.

Check out our Roaring Fork Valley Fly Fishing Report for recent activity of fish and bugs.

With the help of a long time outfitter of the Gunnison Gorge, we are now booking three-day/two-night fly-fishing trips on the ‘Gunnie’.

Holy Winter Batman!!

What a difference a year makes! The winter of 2018/19 could not be more different than last year. We started out with good early season snow and stuck to a nice average December, January and most of February and then BAM!! We had 3+ weeks of extraordinary snowfall! We asked for more snow, and we got it! Look for good river flows all season!

Private Water!

Roaring Fork Anglers and Alpine Angling are fortunate to have access to several private waters in and adjacent to the Roaring Fork Valley. We are also currently involved in the development of a brand new still water near the Colorado river. Stay tuned for more.
