Flattops Wilderness Angling by Horseback


This is a stout day trip adventure either leaving from Cutthroat Anglers or meeting in Sweetwater, CO. We’ve teamed up with Flattops Wilderness Guides to offer a backcountry angling experience like no other! The professional wranglers and their horses will deliver us into the Flattops Wilderness for a day of wade fishing. The remote lakes and streams can only be accessed by foot or hoof so expect a truly wild experience!

We’ll pause midday for a hot meal prepared by the wrangler and head downhill once you’ve had your fill of fishing. Expect to fish for native cutthroat trout and wild brook trout that love dry flies!
