Eagle River

While the upper reaches of our favorite freestone have hardened up there are still plenty of places to get a free drift. Look to nymph the warmest part of the day in some of the deepest water you can find. Midges and your favorite small nymph behind larger softhackles, caddis larva and stone flies is about all the thought you will have to put into your fly selection. Change depth and speed before you change flies.

As of this week most of our private water looks like a skating rink but the upper most beat is still open and is a great place to wet a line during our coldest months.

Roaring Fork and Lower Colorado River  
The place to be in a boat during the middle of the winter. The easy 35 minute drive can offer up some warmer weather, less pressure than normal and some of the biggest fish of the year. Our winter floats on both of these world class fisheries is predominately nymphing deep in the most productive runs during the warmest part of the day. MIdges, BWO, Eggs and Stones will get the fish going for you. All our winter float trips are full days with lunch.

Saturday, 1/24 – Charlie Craven Fly Tying Demo!
Craven at Minturn Anglers - Denver


Craven at Minturn Anglers – Denver

Come by the shop Saturday, Jan. 24th for a day of Charlie Craven flies. Charlie will be here at the Denver shop tying flies from his books, “Charlie’s Fly Box” and “Charlie Craven’s Basic Fly Tier”.
Craven got started in the business as a commercial tyer when he was twelve years old. He guided on the South Platte and other area waters for about twelve years or so, then moved on to help open and run a fly shop in Boulder and eventually opened Charlie’s Fly Box.
Charlie has since written two books and developed a reputation for tying amazing flies and being a great teacher as well.
Mark your calendars. More details to come!
