“Excellent Customer Service and Fishing Experience”
Review of Rocky Mountain Outfitters - MOVED

Rocky Mountain Outfitters
Reviewed November 3, 2014

My husband and I both love to fish but we only had a couple of days at Grand Lake and didn't want to spend the time trying to find the fish. Through the recommendation of many of the locals, we were directed to Jim at Rocky Mountain Outfitters and we were NOT disappointed. Jim is very knowledgeable about the local lakes and the techniques to catch the various fish. We went fishing for Lake Trout and for two solid hours we fished non-stop (catch and release). Jim was very willing to share his knowledge not only about fishing but about the local area. With his advice, we located two different Elk Herds inside of Rocky Mountain National Park. Thanks Jim. We will be back.

Jim is such a great guide. So full of knowledge. Took us right to where all the fish were and told us everything to do to catch them and we did. I caught the biggest fish but my husband got lots of little ones!!! Thanks for the wonderful morning, even if it was raining.

Jim was our guide and took us on a three hour guided fishing trip. We had never fished for trout before, so Jim's knowledge was what we needed. We started with Lake Trout fishing which was over 30 feet deep and required learning how to get the bait at the right depth and the right motion to hook the fish. We caught two Lake Trout and released them. Jim had depth finders at the front and back of the boat which was important for the lake trout fishing. Jim grew up in Grand Lake and also provided a little information about the area and the houses around the Lake as we were trolling for Rainbow Trout as well. We caught 3 or 4 rainbow trout as well. Jim provided all the fishing gear and bait and was great at teaching us how to fish for trout in Grand Lake.
