Fly Fishing

From across the country, people flock to Colorado for the experience of fly fishing in one of the state’s magnificent rivers or streams. Whether you’re looking to improve your technique or simply wish to trade in the noise of city life for the tranquility of a rushing river, fly fishing truly brings together all of the beauty that Colorado has to offer.

While Breckenridge offers a multitude of spots for fly fishing, the surrounding mountains and towns hold even more treasures where rivers, lakes and streams are concerned. The Grand Timber Lodge Activities Desk can help map out any destination day trip as well as help to secure you with a variety of equipment and information regarding the necessary fishing license.

Alpine Fishing Adventures : Alpine Fishing Adventures offers guided fly fishing trips and pontoon boat fishing charters on scenic Dillon Reservoir. While on a fishing trip at Dillon Reservoir you can relax and take in some of the best mountain views around. The pontoon boat charters can accommodate families with young children, parties and groups, and those with special needs. They also provide fishing charters and fishing trips for the serious and accomplished anglers! The waters are loaded with kokanee salmon, arctic Char, brown trout and rainbow trout. So you can try your luck on salmon or rainbows to take home for dinner, or catch and release the unique arctic char, and the trophy brown trout.

While the Activities Desk is a great source of information regarding fly fishing, we highly recommend using a guided service to maximize your fly fishing experience while in Colorado. The Grand Timber Lodge Activities Desk suggests the following services:
