GUIDED FLY FISHING IN ASPEN

Oh, to be a trout in Aspen, Colorado. Lush surroundings aside, the chance to outwit anglers who travel from around the world to fish these legendary waters must be quite the honor. Whatever your skill level, we’ll help you customize a high-end fly fishing trip with our team of experienced guides on the Roaring Fork River or any number of private Gold Medal Waters throughout the Valley. Our guides will teach you how to read the water, professional casting techniques and how to present your fly or lure most attractively to hook rainbows, brookies and browns worthy of fish stories completely void of fiction. Venture out on a fully electric Audi e-tron, equipped with a thule FLY rodvault. All guided fishing trips offer fully customizable gourmet snacks or picnic lunches, with optional wine or beer pairings. Come one, come all, as Summer Adventures with The Little Nell are open to the public.
