Newbie Fly Gal who was in search for a guide who could work to improve my skills and help me hook some fish. I had called around to several guide services in the area and Colorado Angler stood out. They were friendly on the phone and understood my skill level and concerns about my first guide trip, first time in waders & boots as well as traveling from out of state to do this. When I checked in to the shop they couldn't have been friendlier - all CoVid compliant they made sure I felt welcomed and I saw their customer service with others - it was EXCELLENT! They matched me with Michael Baxter. He was patient, a skilled instructor and not only did he help me significantly improve my casting, he also taught me some new casts. Additionally, he helped me to "read the water" and explained the entomology of what the fish were feeding. He was just AMAZING and I booked a second day with him and fished even more waters. Did I catch fish? YES, that was the bonus. However as anyone who has fished knows, that's not always going to happen when you fish (no matter how much you pay to fish) so one day there were takes but no lands - not through ANY fault of the guide, that's just fishing.... So when I read the reviews about people complaining about not catching fish or the weather being bad... that is in no way the fault of Colorado Angler. I HIGHLY recommend their services (ESPECIALLY Michael).

Everything was perfect except that I did not catch any fish. The guide was helpful and kind. The weather was beautiful. The equipment was top notch. The guide took me to a public portion of the Colorado River, and the area was teaming with campers, boaters, rafters, and other fisherman. I bet a 100 boats and rafts passed us. The area was simply over fished. The trip was educational, and I'm glad that I was able to go, but if you book with Colorado Angler, just be sure that you request to go to a place where you are likely to catch fish (at least one).

I have had a great experience every time I've visited, which is no less than 20 times. Great service and advice. Friendly staff who are interested in making sure their customers have a great day fishing. I've been in many shops across Idaho, Wyoming and Montana. This shop is among the best. Thanks!

My son in law and i went on a fly fishing float trip with The Colorado Angler. I would recommend them to anyone interested in fly fishing. The shop was very accommodating in finding the best day to fish. Their gear is very good. Colin our guide was exceptional. I am an experienced fly fisherman but my son in law had only been fly fishing once before. Colin was terrific at giving instruction as well as putting us lots of fish. No doubt whenever I am in Summit County and go fly fishing I will call The Colorado Angler and request Colin to be my guide.
