Fall Fly Fishing in Colorado:
Colorado is a great place to fly fish during any season, but
especially fall! School is back in session, summer vacations
are over, and the rivers are less crowded. The days are
getting shorter, the weather has cooled a bit, the leaves are
changing, and the trout are hungry as they fatten up for
winter. Fall fly fishing means something different to all
Colorado anglers. Some people look forward to the relative
solitude. Others look forward to the fantastic dry fly fishing.
Some people think of the brilliant koakanee salmon as they
make their way upstream to spawn, and still others think of
big brown trout chasing streamers. Whatever you look
forward to, fall is a beautiful time of year to be fly fishing and
arguably offers some of Colorado's finest fly fishing of the
Brown trout in the fall can take on amazing color. Brown
trout spawn in the fall, so be careful not to disturb the
spawning fish. Before they spawn, they take on some
brilliant color that rivals the fall foliage. After they spawn
they need to feed constantly to regain their strength and
energy before winter.
When targeting Colorado trout in the fall, be sure to have a
variety of weapons in your fly fishing arsenal. Dry fly
enthusiasts can match the hatch with fall BWO's, tricos,
midges, and a few caddis flies. Be sure to have some
nymphs ready to probe for large trout feeding under the
surface. A small egg pattern with a variety of small nymphs
trailed behind can be a deadly fall fly fishing combination.
Streamer fishermen get ready! Many aggressive big fish fall
prey to streamers every fall as they feed heavily to prepare
We offer a wide range of fall guide trip options and with good
water levels the fly fishing is exceptional. So get the fly rod
out and enjoy a day fly fishing in the Colorado rockies
before we get out the winter gloves and skies!
