Four Day 4x4 Wilderness Camp Fishing Trips

2-2 Guests

Description

Wilderness Camp Fishing Trips

4-Day | Fly Fishing | Transportation by 4x4

These trips are designed for adventurous fly-fishermen and those wanting to fish some of the most remote wilderness streams and lakes in the Lower 48. Guests should be prepared for camping in comfortable wall tent camps, 8-15 miles into the Flat Tops Wilderness Area. It is not uncommon for fishermen to go all four days, seeing few other fishermen outside of their group.

These trips include a fishing guide, transportation by 4×4 for the duration of the trip, and well-equipped camps. Meals are prepped “wilderness style” with open-fire cooking and Dutch oven cooking mixed in.

4 Day trips are available with a 2-person minimum.

  • The price includes a guide.

  • Three meals a day and drinks (excluding alcohol).

  • All fly fishing gear.

  • The price does not include your fishing license or guide tip (typically 10-20%).

Our ranch is located approximately one hour from the Vail Valley and Glenwood Springs. Because of our remoteness, we rarely run into other people (hikers, horseback riders, bikers, etc.) during our trips. Trips are in a truly pristine wilderness that no longer exists next to any of the ski towns.

Rules & Guidelines

https://cpw.state.co.us/Documents/RulesRegs/Brochure/fishing.pdf

Anglers 16 and older must buy and carry a fishing license to take fish, amphibians, and crustaceans. Bag limits may apply.

Residents 65 and older may obtain an annual senior fishing license.

Anglers using a second rod, hand-line, or tip-up must purchase a Second-Rod Stamp. This includes seniors and youths under the age of 16.

General Considerations

The best gear you can bring is the right state of mind to enjoy the wilderness. Colorado serves up a high percentage of perfect sunny days in the summer; the fish bite all day, wildlife abounds and there are mind boggling views. However, the area is a remote and wild place. Weather and many other variables can affect your trip. Having the right attitude for this type of trip can make or

break your experience.

Our day trips are perfect for trying out new gear, but use all your gear before bringing it on our multi-day trips. This especially applies to boots, day packs and safety equipment. New, not-worn in boots can ruin a trip. Making sure your day pack fits well will make your trip more enjoyable.

If you are coming with a group, please try to limit duplicate items. Work with each other to organize who brings what. Everywhere we go requires pack stock. We want to avoid packing unneeded weight. This lessens the impact on the wilderness (less pack animals used) and allows staff to focus on guiding activities instead of caring for more pack animals.

The weather in June-August is usually sunny with highs in the 55-70 degree range and night time temps in the 40-50 degree range. Just keep in mind, the altitude does allow any day to turn out to be a winter day. A large portion of our area is around 10k to above 11k.

On day trips, you can get away with most all clothing materials as long as you make sure to bring decent rain gear. On multi-day trips, stay away from cotton, i.e. Carhartt, blue jeans, cotton socks, etc… When cotton gets wet it is useless and it will exacerbate suboptimal weather’s effect on your body. Focus on wool and synthetics. There is a lot of newer technology clothing that is lightweight, packable, warm and dries quickly.

Don’t hesitate to give us a call about any specific gear questions.
