Guided Float Fishing trips offer a unique way experience fly fishing and enjoy all that a day on the water in Colorado has to offer. If the idea of a relaxing day fishing a river from a drift boat or raft with fly rod in hand sounds fun, you can’t go wrong. One major benefit of a float trip is they allow for not only great fishing but also provides anglers abundant opportunities to cast to fish that you couldn’t access on a wade trip. Float trips also allow you to cover miles of water and provide a new sense of adventure around each bend. Best of all, like a wade trip, your attentive guide will take care of your every need and provide coaching and guidance. It’s a great way to experience some of Colorado’s grander rivers, all while fishing from the comfort of a boat. If you enjoy casting larger dry flies and streamers, fishing out of a boat is a great way to cover more water without the legwork of moving up and down the river. If your party consists of 2-anglers, float trips also provide a great bonding opportunity for you and your fellow angler for some good conversation and spirited ribbing.
Our guided float fishing trips include a drift boat or raft, a cooler full of water, Scott Flex fly rods and Ross Gunnison fly reels, terminal tackle, premium Simms waders and boots, transportation to and from the river, and one of our Professional Fly Fishing Guides. All full day trips include a freshly prepared riverside lunch.
Colorado fishing licenses or gratuity for the guide are not included in our guided trip pricing. Colorado Fishing Licenses can be obtained online on the CPW Website. All trip participants 16 years of age and older are required to carry a valid Colorado fishing license with them at all times while fishing. We strongly our guests to purchase their license online prior to the trip in order to save time and get on the river sooner.
Colorado can be an unpredictable place when it comes to weather, so please be prepared with hat, sunglasses, socks, layers, sunscreen and rain jacket. Significant temperature swings are not uncommon, so be sure to check the weather prior to your trip. If you're unsure about what you may need, give our Frisco location a call at (970) 668-2583.
Safety is our number one priority at Trouts Fly Fishing, as such drugs are not permitted on any of our fly fishing trips. Alcohol is permitted and must be provided by the client. All trips go out rain or shine unless conditions are deemed unsafe by the guide. If you have any questions please call the shop at (877) 464-0034 or email us at email@example.com. In the event that a trip is canceled, we will reschedule the trip for a future date.
Guide since 1995
Growing up in Washington state, Zeke fell in love with fishing at an early age. Fly fishing engaged him after watching a Steelhead angler fly cast on early morning bike rides to school. For a summer, he was a daily visitor at the local fly shop, quickly absorbing as much information as he could. Zeke loves to break down the technical aspects of fly fishing and fish tendencies to find the best and most effective methods for success. An ever-patient instructor, lover of the outdoors, and teacher of the art, science, and wonder of fly fishing is what motivates Zeke to continue to further educate himself and others about the sport he loves.Meet all our Guides
Our guided float trips are conducted out of a drift boat or raft, and are offered exclusively out of our Frisco location on the Colorado, Eagle and Roaring Fork Rivers. Float trips are ideal for anglers looking to see and fish water that they wouldn't have access to on foot, as well as those looking for a unique and memorable day on the water. Due to the logistics of these trips, they are only offered for Full Days.
Our Guided Lake Float Fishing Trips are a great way to get away from the crowds and experience an often overlooked method of fly fishing. Taking place on Spinney Mountain Reservoir, Lake floats are a great alternative to river floats during runoff, when area rivers are swollen with spring snowmelt. Due to the logistics of these trips, Lake Floats are offered exclusively out of our Frisco location and are limited to full days only.
