Winter is one of our favorite times of year to fly fish here on the Roaring Fork River! Many people think of fly fishing as a warm weather affair, but the winter means less fishermen and more fish for those willing to get out there.

It’s a magical experience, and once you try it, you may find yourself reaching for a fly rod instead of your skis!

However, trout also take advantage of … Read More
