My wife, Dad, Brothers and 10 of my best friends surprised me with a weekend fly fishing trip on the Colorado River for my 40th bday. Fortunately, they used Trouts Fly Fishing to plan the trip. Everything was first class in my opinion.

For the majority of us, it was our first time fly fishing. The guides were all knowledgeable, patient and put each boat on a good amount of fish. I’m sure it was frustrating dealing with some of us and the wind was brutal, but they powered through it.

I personally floated with Brian Hilbert, the dude knows that river and he works his a$& off for his customers. If you’re booking a trip, I would ask for him personally, he’s that good. That’s not a knock on any of the other guides, they were all solid.

Spent two days on the water with Brian Hilbert out of Trouts Fly Fishing in Denver. We fished Deckers and some private water near Lake George. Worked droppers and dries in both places. My son and I had an excellent experience. Brian consistently put us on fish, was there with advice when appropriate and always on hand to help land fish or address any issues we encountered. He is a genuinely a nice guy, as well. We have fished with a number of guides over time and Brian is in the very top rank from our experience. You can't go wrong spending time on the water with him!

I am an aspiring fly fisherman with limited skills. Through Trouts I had a day of guided fly fishing primarily to help me improve my skills. My guide was Tucker Bamford, He was knowledgeable about regarding the fishing, which I would expect. Most importantly, he has the skill and the patience to effectively teach the art and science of fly fishing. It made my day both fun and educational.

Josh Diller was great; my son (13) and I have tried catching fish on fly rods but Josh made it happen. We were there to take it in, learn how to read the river, set up the rod and casting techniques. We accomplished it all in a 1/2 day and caught 7 fish!

Spent Saturday on the River with Brian Hilbert from Trouts Fly Fishing. One of the best guides we've ever experienced - caught a bunch (~20) of beautiful fish with a mix of browns and rainbows! Brian taught us a lot and made sure that all of us were taken good care of, regardless of level of angling experience or skill. Can't wait to get back out there with you!

Just finished carp school and could not have asked for more. Rick and Barry are incredibly knowledgeable, talented, and patient guides who strive to put fish in the net, but more importantly leave you with the skills needed to fly solo after class. All 4 anglers brought multiple fish to hand chasing carp on the DSP.

Took the Beginner fly fishing 2-day course and it was excellent. Our guides Will and Josh did an excellent job with catering to a variety of skill levels and I would strongly recommend Trouts for any and ALL gear and continued educational courses.

Cheers

This is exactly what we aim for with the 2 day schools. So glad Josh, Will and Trouts could help you with all you were looking for. We hope to get you on the water again in the future.

Trout's instructors are professional guides and can really offer a condensed basics course along with time on the river that will immediately put you in a confident place to start fishing with greater success. We saw folks catch their first trout with no experience prior and others who have fly fished get to learn the basics again and apply them to netting fish. My dad and I went together and both came out better fishermen and had a blast!

Sean Cowman took my girlfriend and I on an epic day of fishing the Arkansas River. Caught over 25 fish. Learned so much and improved immensely in the sport. I have so much more confidence in my abilities and Sean made a point to help us individually as well as capture great moments with photos and videos I will cherish forever. Sean is fun to spend the day with and really is passionate about the sport and people loved it as much as he does.

I had the pleasure of working with Brian H. on a group event for Western Energy Alliance. He was professional, thorough, and with streamlined communication, made the day easy for me and our 27 anglers. I solicited feedback from all of our attendees and every person had a fantastic day on the river, regardless of the size fish they caught. Thank you Brian and the entire Trouts team for making the experience fun and memorable!
