Crested Butte Angler

Guided Fly Fishing Wade Trips

Our wade trips are fun, educational, and revolve around instruction.  The Crested Butte area has a wide variety of fly fishing options with small streams, tailwaters, freestone rivers, backcountry lakes, and reservoirs to fish. The Taylor River is a favorite for strong summer hatches and healthy trout.  The Crested Butte backcountry has rainbows, browns, brookies, and cutthroats with miles of trout water to explore.  Kokanee salmon run in the Gunnison and East River during the late summer and fall.  The kokanee migrate by the thousand upstream to spawn.  They attract pods of hungry trout that make for some of the best fly fishing of the season.  Crested Butte Angler guides can accommodate large groups or the solitary angler.  We have guides who truly enjoy teaching kids and families.  We welcome first time anglers to try something new as wade trips are the best way to learn fly fishing.  The majority of our wade trips meet at the shop between 8-9 am.  We typically recommend half day trips, which are four hours on the water.  Flies and equipment are provided on all trips.  Purchase guided trip
