Serving Vail, Beaver Creek & The Roaring Fork Valley

Locally owned and operated Colorado River Outfitters offers both float fishing and wade fishing year round. Our professional guides offer a brilliant knowledge of our local rivers, entomology and wild trout. We love our rivers, we love to fly fish and we love to guide. It’s simply our passion.

Colorado River Outfitters is a fully licensed, insured and bonded Outfitter. We operate under Special Use Permits from the State of Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. We are regulated by the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA out. #00022753).  Our areas of public operation include the Colorado, Eagle, Roaring Fork, Frying Pan, Yampa Rivers and Stage Coach State Park Reservoir. 

We are excited about our new fleet of 2020 fly fishing boats featuring ClackaCraft Drift Boats. We have customized our fleet for your safety and comfort. We use only the best equipment the industry offers and have the safest and most experienced float guides in the Vail Valley. Colorado River Outfitters is “Best in Class” and we look forward to making your next fly fishing experience a safe and enjoyable one.  All fishing is catch and release.
