Caught Fish

The best in local knowledge means you catch more fish!


There are a few companies offering full-day or half-day fishing trips throughout the county. Experienced guides can show you the spots and techniques for your best chances at “The Big One”.


Tour companies offer trips that cater to the whole family, even those who have challenged mobility,  no fishing experience, or young children. Knowledgeable tour guides teach about fishing and finding fish as well as local lore and history.

Fish Caught in the Lake Dillon Ice

Catch trout, kokanee salmon, arctic char, and smallmouth bass!


Fly fishing trips are available year round, and local guides know the spots where the fish are hanging out no matter what season. The weather can be great for fishing, with sunny days year round. 


For fly fishing the favorite season for most people is probably the fall, with more consistent weather and water than other seasons. The novelty of ice fishing is available only in the winter, usually starting just after Thanksgiving, when the great Lake Dillon is frozen thick enough for walking.
