Rocky Mountain National Park

Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) is a great place to spend the day fly fishing on clear mountain streams and high country lakes for native cutthroat trout. Most of the fish are eager to take a dry fly and there seems to be a fish in every hole.

The park covers 415 square miles and hosted over 3,443,501 visitors in July of 2014. While most people come for the scenery and wildlife the fishing can be like nothing you have every experienced. When it's hot it feels like you get a fish on every cast. There are several options for a fly fishing guided trip into Rocky Mountain National Park.

Creeks and Streams

RMNP has over 450 miles of water throughout the park just waiting to be discovered. Sometimes you will never even see another person fishing. Fish in Morine park for easy casting and the possibility for a larger brown trout. Want to catch a lot of fish? Spend some time hiking with your guide to where there are brook trout behind every rock and are ready to take your caddis in a splashy take that will entertain you all day long. Let one of our experienced fly fishing guides show you some of the best water and give you a fly fishing trip to remember for years to come.

High Mountain Lakes

One of best ways to see R is to book an 8 hour fly fishing guided trip and spend some time fishing one of the many high country lakes. Two of our favorites are The Loch and Mills Lake located on the east side of the park, accessed from the Glacier Gorge trail head. You will hike for about an hour but the fishing will be well worth it as the native greenback cutthroat take your ant pattern off the surface as they cruse the shallows. Watching the whole time as he swims up to take you can be quite the test of your nerves. Set the hook right as he takes your fly, to soon and away he swims.
