Collection: Fishing Trips

Recognized as the Vail Valley's most experienced and most prominent guide service for over 35 years, the staff of Gore Creek Fly Fisherman welcomes you to sample some of the finest trout fishing the west has to offer. From novice anglers to well-seasoned fishermen, you will be treated to an experience on the legendary waters of the Vail Valley and beyond - an experience that will leave you with memories of a lifetime. We accommodate all skill levels, as well as children over the age of 8 on float and wade trips.

Access to the Colorado River, the Eagle River, Gore Creek, the Roaring Fork and many tributaries and the most extensive National Forest Service permits in the Vail Valley, give you never-ending options for unlimited fishing adventures!

Our guides spend more time in waders than they do in regular clothes. They're on the water daily, and their knowledge and experience ensures they will show you a memorable fishing experience on our waters. With a wealth of waters to choose from, the guides will select certain waters based on angler preference, level of experience, water conditions and current hatches.

Wade trips are taken on all local waters. Our float trips utilize uniquely designed fishing rafts and drift boats, and are taken on the upper and lower Colorado, Eagle and Roaring Fork Rivers. Float trips offer the angler the chance to do two kinds of fishing on the same trip. Fishing from a boat is fast-paced and exciting. You will have the chance to stop, get out and wade fish for a while. Wade fishing offers a more intimate approach to the water, the fish and the surroundings. Just take your time and relax - that’s what its all about. Half-day wade trips will offer the angler 4 hours of on-the-water fishing, and about 5 hours total with travel. Full-day wade trips are 7-8 hours total, with fishing and travel. Both are great opportunities and will give you enough information so you can go to the river on your own, apply what you learned, and catch those trout!
