Guided Fly Fishing, SteamboatSprings -

April has been nothing but unpredictable weather. Last week Steamboat had temps in the low 70’s and this last weekend we got hit with over five inches of snow. It’s difficult to predict what we can expect for the last stretch of April, but what we do know is that floating season is upon us! May really is one of our favorite times of the year. There’s nothing like hanging out on a boat all day and catching fish.It's currently 29°F with a high of 50°F and mix of sunshine and clouds. The snow is still melting, especially at higher...

Happy first week of Spring! The weather is really starting to heat up as we head into the early season. The main difference between March and last month is that now most of the Yampa through town is fully accessible. We have had enough consistent warm weather in the last few weeks that the Yampa from top access of town to bottom access of town is completely open. In some areas the river might have a little bit of shelf ice on the banks, but other than that it’s completely cleared for fishing. In the morning there also could be slush,...

When it comes to fly fishing in the winter, weather and location are obvious factors that come into play.

Happy winter solstice, everyone! We're looking forward to longer days and colder weather. Due to unseasonably warm temperatures, we expect the ice to freeze up later this winter season. As eager as we are to get out on the ice and go fishing, the ice still is not thick enough for us to feel confident about safely guiding trips. Because safety for our customers is our number one priority, we don’t like to take any chances and we don’t start our guided ice fishing trips until we are 1000% confident that the ice is thick enough. That said we will keep...

Today is Thursday, October 28. Following the snow storm from the PNW, today it is cloudy with a high of 40°F. We can expect temperatures to warm up in the low to mid 50’s over the weekend.The water temperatures are staying chilly throughout the day, which is good for fishing conditions. We’ve been finding good success with Midges in the morning, especially on overcast days like today the egg bite performs well because the brown trout are spawning. In addition, the streamer bite continues to be really good and we recommend staying tight to the bank throughout the day.As afternoon...
