FLY FISHING IN ESTES PARK: ABUNDANT, BEAUTIFUL
Rocky Mountain National Park provides high country stream and lake fishing with abundant water life. As the headwaters for the Colorado, Big Thompson, Cache la Poudre and Fall Rivers, Rocky Mountain National Park is one of the world’s most popular fishing destinations, especially for fly fisherman. Local vendors offer guided trips and outdoor adventure and are often the only way you can get to the locals’ favorite hot spots in the area.
WHERE TO GO FOR FLY FISHING SUPPLIES
There are numerous flyshops and vendors around the Estes Park area that can provide you with whatever you need to start your fishing adventure, and even take you on a guided tour!
Continue your mountain adventure on an off-road experience via 4×4 Jeep or ATV. Local vendors offer both fully guided tours and/or rental vehicles for you to explore the backcountry on your own. Abundant area mountain trails are accessible but challenging and usually reward the adventurous with breathtaking mountaintop view destinations. Perhaps you want to just go along for the ride, some vendors offer tour opportunities with a guided option.
White water rafting is a fast track to that adrenaline rush you’ve been craving, and a great way to lead up to a relaxing evening of food and fun. One great example is the Cache la Poudre, which offers class II – IV rapids to keep you in the zone. Several providers in the area offer experienced guided rafting tours and full white water outfitting capabilities.
