Part of being an industry leading fly shop means finding unique products for our customers both near and far.  We work tirelessly finding goods that will enhance your angling experience, or maybe just make your time on the water a little bit better.  For years anglers have been asking for a safe and effective way to transport their rods on their vehicles.  While a few options did come to market, none met our standards of quality, durability and value.  In late 2013 I stumbled upon a product I knew was going to be a big hit, one that was going to fulfill the needs of our customers once and for all, the Big Sky Rod Box.  Made from 18 guage high grade aluminum, every Big Sky Rod Box is proudly made in Bozeman, MT and is the most durable and functional fly rod carrier on the market today.  Trouts Fly Fishing is the exclusive Colorado Dealer of Big Sky Rod Boxes, you can check them out online, or come by our Denver location to see why these are a must have piece of gear for any traveling fly angler.

Trip Report - Float Fishing the Colorado River

July 11, 2014
Author: Tucker Ladd

With Baby Ladd due to makes it's grand debut in roughly 4 weeks, the wife and I decided to head to the High Country for a couple days of float fishing on the Colorado River.  Flows were on the fall from roughly 3,000 cfs to around 2,500 cfs, with a majority of the drop coming from decreased releases from Green Mountain and Williams Fork Reservoirs.  The water was clear, the bugs were popping all day, and the trout were as happy and healthy as I've seen in years.  It's apparent that the last couple years of good flows have produced a healthy and vibrant trout population on our states namesake river.

Our friends down at Duranglers in Durango, CO recently sent us a detailed summary of fishing conditions for the month of July.  Sounds like an ideal time to get down south and enjoy some great summer fishing, check out the report for yourself!

Durango July Fishing Report

June has come and gone and with it, a month of unreal fishing has passed.  Not to worry, July is the high point of our summer fishing season and it continues to be great in our small slice of fishing heaven.  As we wind down our Rio Grande float season and our guides head back over the hill towards Durango; we anticipate another fantastic month of great fly fishing.  Just to recap; John, Tom, and the boys spent the better part of June over in Creede, Colorado floating anglers down the Rio Grande River.  Thanks to the snow pack and temps this spring; the water flows remained constant, the bug hatches were unreal, and fishing was truly lights out for weeks on end.  Just check out this video John took of the Salmonfly hatch:
