Learn About Winter Fly Fishing with Pat Dorsey & The Blue Quill Angler in Evergreen, CO

The approach of winter can be a time of sadness for some anglers as they consider the season for fly fishing coming to an end. At the Blue Quill Angler, winter is one of our favorite times of the year to fish. It allows us to enjoy some solitude on the water with nothing more than our gear, the fish, and Colorado’s pristine environments. With the right equipment to endure the elements, anglers can enjoy a bit of solitude and find some hungry fish on nearly any winter outing. This winter, we want to help you keep your line in the water, so we’re continuing with our Winter Fly Fishing Classes throughout this winter. Leading this class is none other than co-owner of the BQA, SIMMS Ambassador and Southwest Field Editor for Fly Fisherman Magazine, Pat Dorsey.

Discover the Joys of Fly Fishing in Winter

Taking advantage of our Winter Fly Fishing Classes with Pat Dorsey means spending the day on the legendary South Platte River while learning the nuances of catching trout during the winter months. Pat Dorsey begins the day with a discussion on fly selection and effective rigging for your rod. From there, Pat seamlessly moves on to seasonal strategies for where you’re most likely to find trout during the winter. Once these subjects are covered and questions answered, Pat explains tactics and techniques for fooling trout with an unmistakable snack on the end of your line between mid-November and mid-March. The rest of the day is spent refining your skills with expert insight from Pat Dorsey.

Note

Due to drought we’re in, the flows on the South Platte River near Deckers are forecasted to be low this winter. We want to continue to stack the odds in your favor, so we’ve decided to expand our Winter Fly Fishing Classes by offering several dates on our new private leases outside of Bailey, CO. These leases (Rawhide and Shawnee Meadows) are on the North Fork of the South Platte, which will have favorable flows this winter with Roberts Tunnel staying on.
