At Trouts, we believe that there is always room to grow and learn in the sport of fly fishing. From first-timers, to seasoned anglers, we know that there's always room for improvement to enhance your time on the water. Our goal is to both inspire learning and offer our customers, no matter what their age or experience level, an opportunity to learn something new about fly fishing. While recent events delayed our on-the-water classes and schools, we're excited to offer a wide variety of fly fishing specialty schools to help you add skills to your fly fishing toolbox as we move into June.
Given current events, we're changing the way these on-the-water classes are being conducted. First and probably the most notable is the reduction of class sizes depending on the respective class. Additionally, the classroom portion of each class will be done over ZOOM. Check out our upcoming fly fishing specialty schools!

STILLWATER SCHOOL | JUNE 6TH, 2020
Stillwaters are often overlooked by fly anglers, but they are dynamic, insect-filled, trophy trout holding waters that can produce some of your most memorable days on the water whether from a boat or on foot. Stillwaters aren't just an escape from the high flows of runoff, they are prolific and fruitful choice for your next day on the water. If you’ve been looking to dial in stillwaters here in the Centennial State, then make sure to make room in your schedule for Trouts 2020 Stillwater School.
The school is designed around a full day float on one of Colorado's productive stillwater fisheries with our very best Guides! During the day, our expert instructors will teach you the basics of Fly Selection, Retrieval Methods, Presentation and everything else you need to know when it comes to fly fishing stillwaters!

NYMPHING SCHOOL | JUNE 13TH, 2020
For most of us, its hard to beat throwing dry flies…it’s visual, you see the eat and it's just a flat out fun way to fish. As we begin to approach the colder months, we begin to see less and less dry fly activity and that shouldn’t keep you from getting out to fish. It’s no secret that trout spend the majority of their time feeding under the surface of the water (upwards of 80%). In Vegas, those are some pretty good odds! Join us for on-the-water Introductory Nymphing Schools! We’ll cover rigging, roll casting, mending, high-stick and long line techniques, eliminating drag, swinging and more! (COST: $250)
