Horseback

Wilderness Fly Fishing in Colorado

The Blue Quill Angler has partnered with Colorado Outfitters to offer a very limited number of hosted, backcountry, guided fly-fishing expeditions this summer! These 5-day excursions on horseback will let you escape the crowds, chasing wild brook trout and cutthroats, while enjoying an all-inclusive, hosted camping experience. These trips include all meals, camp setup, horses and a fly-fishing guide to help you get into the action with some of these awesome fish.

These trips are suitable for anyone interested in a true backcountry experience. They’re family-friendly and are open to men, women and kids who just want to get off the grid, escape the crowds and enjoy the beautiful Colorado backcountry.

These adventures will be limited to a maximum of 6 people per trip, with 2 guides, so the experience is sure to be unforgettable!

Our pack-in Wilderness Trips provide access to some of Colorado’s finest backcountry fishing. Our remote camps offer comfortable accommodations. Camps are set with Wall or Cabela’s Alaknak Tents, wood stoves, cots and foam pads. All pack-in trips are done on horseback with mule strings. The riding stock is assigned by client size and ability, and first time riders welcome, as we have the stock that can accommodate. We will go over basic riding tips and safety before leaving the trailhead.

Our premium fishing camp is off the beaten path and will be a four to five hour horseback ride. Based on this, we are arranging for 5-day trips with three full days of fishing plus one day packing in and one day packing out. We use packable boats which further enhance the fishing and result in more fish in your net. The fishing is excellent as there are 5 different lakes and a small stream all within a reasonable walk from camp. There are additional lake options within a 90-minute horseback ride. You can expect to catch brook trout and cutthroats typically ranging from ten to sixteen inches, with occasional bigger cutthroats approaching twenty inches.

Our package will include three meals a day, starting out with fresh brewed coffee, juice and a hearty breakfast (e.g. bacon/eggs or pancakes/sausage, etc.). Lunch will generally be a sack lunch with sandwiches, fresh fruit and snacks. At dinner, clients can look forward to meals like barbecued chicken, mashed potatoes and a vegetable or salad with some home-baked cookies for dessert! Campfires are the norm most evenings (unless there is a fire ban). If desired, we will also customize a menu to your liking.
