Cutthroat Anglers

COLORADO RIVER & LAKE INFORMATION

Fly Fishing in Spinney Mountain Reservoir

Fish Colorado. Small streams. Free stone rivers. Tail waters. High mountain lakes. Still water reservoirs. Almost every trout fishing environment is available in Colorado. Cutthroat Anglers sits on the banks of the Blue River in Siverthorne, Colorado. But our guides fish any river within 100 miles of our fly shop. We also generate daily Colorado fishing reports to keep you on top of the latest conditions. If you want to fish in Colorado, we can usually find a productive stretch of river with our extensive coverage no matter the local weather conditions.

 

The Colorado Division of Wildlife designates certain rivers and lakes throughout the state as Gold Medal Waters. If you are planning to fish Colorado these waters are determined to offer the greatest potential for trophy trout fishing. Cutthroat Anglers is proud to be permitted to guide on six of the thirteen total Gold Medal Rivers. We also believe that many of the local fisheries are equally comparable to the Gold Medal waters. Our Colorado fishing reports are the most comprehensive in the Rockies so make sure to check them out  before you fish Colorado!
