Some anglers are saddened by the onset of winter, while others welcome the change of season. Winter has become one of our favorite times of the year to fly fish, especially when we’re seeking a little solitude. Anglers willing to endure the elements will typically find uncrowded conditions and a few cooperative trout on almost any winter outing. Our goal this winter is to keep you fly fishing! We are now offering a Winter Fly Fishing Clinic to our curriculum.
Spend the day with veteran guide Pat Dorsey on the fabled South Platte River near Deckers to learn the nuances of catching trout during the winter. Dorsey will begin the day with a discussion on fly selection and how to rig your rod. Then he smoothly transitions into seasonal strategies (where to find trout during the winter), followed by learning the tactics and techniques to consistently fool trout between mid-November and mid-March. For the remainder of the day, Dorsey will help each student refine their skills.
