What to bring:, Summer Months. We like to wear long sleeve shirts that are lightweight and protect us from the sun. Shorts, light pants, sunscreen, raincoats, baseball hats, and polarized sunglasses are really all you need. All fishing equipment including waders, boots, rods, reels and flies will be provided. Make sure to have your Social Security number handy; it is required to purchase a fishing license in Colorado!, Our Elk River trips start around the first of July and will remain open until it freezes over sometime in mid-late December. Call the shop for availability in the winter, sometimes the Elk will open in March and April and the fishing can be phenomlinal!
- Fast riffles to deep holes to long slicks and sharp cut banks.
- Beginner and experienced angler alike will find themselves at home with any style of fly fishing.
- Located mid way up the Elk River, this stretch of water provides the perfect climate due to the high country cold water that flows out of the Zirkel Wilderness.
