If you’ve ever been fly fishing in Colorado before, chances are you went out on a beautiful Summer day. Colorado gets some of the most sun of any State, and our warm Summer days in the Rockies are picture-perfect for getting out on the water. The options for Summer fly fishing in Colorado are seemingly endless: there are countless freestones, tailwaters, creeks, and lakes to explore. Many of these waters offer a wide variety of bug life, allowing anglers to pick and choose their methods and techniques when trying to fool Colorado’s 4 species of resident trout. The Summer months are a great time for new anglers to cut their teeth and learn the ropes of fly fishing, as fish are active and spread out, often more willing to make a mistake and accept our offerings than during other times of year.
Summer Fly Fishing with NFRGS
Summer is North Fork Ranch Guide Service’s busiest time of year, with trips going out daily to any of our various destinations. We are lucky to offer premier private access ranging from small streams teeming with dry-fly hungry Browns, to a 3-acre lake where anglers can hone their Stillwater skills, to exclusive sections of the North Fork of the South Platte River that offer some of the largest trout around. Summer also means peak season at the North Fork Ranch, where anglers can return from a day on the water to 5-star meals, lodging accommodations, and even a hot tub to loosen up that shoulder after pulling on big fish all day!
