Cutthroat Anglers


Winter fly fishing for the dedicated angler

If you find yourself thirsting to land trout during the winter we offer guided winter fly fishing trips for the die-hard angler.

Fly fishing the Blue in Winter

Since the winter mornings and late afternoons can be a bit too cold to fish comfortably, we typically host half-day trips from November into March. Our winter trips start later and end earlier than our summer trips-- think "bankers hours." 

Fishing in Colorado during the snowy days of winter you may be rewarded with trophy size trout. Much of the fishable water on our winter fly fishing trips is limited to tail waters, but the lack of fishing pressure causes the trophy trout to spread throughout the river. Primarily, we will sight fish to the monster trout with micro size nymphs. Warmer winter fly fishing days can produce BWO and midge hatches.


So, if you are looking for a change of pace from the long lift lines and icy ski trails, consider an alternative plan of action. A guided fly fishing trip with us on the Blue River, the Williams Fork River, or the Colorado River might just be the highlight of your "ski vacation."
