Fly Fishing in Summit County

With the warm weather taking over the high country, it’s time to step outside and enjoy the amazing fly fishing here in Summit County, Colorado! Summit County and its surrounding areas offer some of the best fly fishing in the United States, allowing first timers to hook up their first fish, while also offering seasoned pros the chance to hunt trophy trout.

There is a plethora of exceptional fishing destinations in the area where fly fishermen (and women), young and old, have a good chance of getting into trout. Some of the most common fishing spots are on the Blue River in Silverthorne and in Downtown Breckenridge. Although the latter is no longer considered gold-medal water, it still can provide a great day! If you’re not interested in fishing rivers, check out Lake Dillion or Montgomery Reservoir for great lake-fishing options. These locations provide some excellent spots for fishing the banks, or you can get your hands on a canoe and explore what each lake offers. Finally, later in the year once the snow melts off, high alpine lake fishing can be quite a rewarding adventure. Hike up to the Mohawk Lakes, Clinton Gulch or Black Lake for great views and an escape from the crowds.

What you’ll need for your fishing trip:

  • Colorado fishing license
  • Fly rod
  • Waders and boots (optional but HIGHLY recommended)
  • Flies, midges and streamers
  • Spooled reel, line, leader, tippet, forceps and nippers
  • A net

If you don’t have all the necessary equipment, don’t worry! We have some awesome guide services in the county that can get you and your family set up with everything you need!
