Eagle River

There’s nothing wrong with some dirty water. Bigger flies, heavier rigs, drinkin’ beers and fishin’ from the bank. It’s a great challenge for all of us and the fish haven’t gone anywhere. Hit em in the face… they’ll eat it! Big flies (get “jiggy”)
Start thinking about putting your time in on these little gems. These will keep you pretty occupied as the Eagle rises and falls from stained to high and clear to low. Brush Creek in Eagle has been fire lately and the Upper Eagle and Homestake and great water during these higher flows (check ahead of time to see if the roads are open!).
Colorado River 
Please see above! The stonefly hatch is in full effect and the fishies need to be caught by you! Think subsurface – Pat’s Rubber Legs, 20 Inchers, Stone Bombs and fish em right along the edges. The best way to fish the Colorado right now is from the boat so book your float with us for your best chances of gettin’ tight on some brown gold.

Front Range Fishing Reports



River Donkeys are one the move!!!

If you’re a seasoned carp wrangler then I’m sure you’re just like me and you’ve been watching the flows on the Denver South Platte like a hawk waiting for the water to clear up and drop. Im here to tell you that the season is upon us and carp fishing both on the Platte and stillwater around the Front Range has been getting better by the day. We’ve got all the necessities for carpin’ down at the Parker shop, from carp leaders and buggy carp snacks to 7wt rods and reels with enough stopping power to turn and burn these Golden Bones.
If you’ve never gotten down and dirty with the carps no need to worry! We’ve got some guides that would love to show you the ropes and introduce you to another species to throw the fly rods at. Stop by the shop or give us a call if you wanna lear the ropes. Don’t let another Summer pass you by without feeling the tug of a carp on your line!!! Call for booking information or intel on how to get your carp game on!!! 720-851-4665>>>>>
