Grand County Fly Fishing Company has teamed up with Winter Park Lodging by Owner for guest disounts on guided fly fishing trips. I just met with co-owner Jeff Ehlert at a networking event through the Chamber of Commerce, and they have convinced me that I would choose no other fly fishing outfitter. Their guides have decades of experience, all of them practically born with a fly rod in their hands, and have the patience needed to help you have an enjoyable and stress-free experience. They’ll help you find the best water and choose the best bait as well, guidance that can prevent a lot of frustration for unexperienced anglers. Plus, not only can they take you to world-class sites on the Colorado River, North Platte River and Rocky Mtn National Park waters, they have four miles of exclusive access to the Fraser River.
Here is an excerpt from their website on the benefits of fishing the private access of the Fraser River –
“The public water in and around Grand County is spectacular, but sometimes you just want a stream all to yourself. We have miles of private water on the Fraser River where you can find the solitude that you’ve dreamed about. In contrast to the private water trend, we manage our water for wild trout. You won’t find pasty, pellet fed, finless trout that fight like a wet towel here. This is what fly fishing was meant to be.”
Guests of Winter Park Lodging by Owner save 10% on all guided trips. That is savings from from $20 to $65, depending on what type of guided fly fishing trip you choose. There are wade or float trips ranging from 4to 8 hours and lunch and snacks are included in the 6 to 8 hour trips. If you just want to go out on your own, they also have equipment for rent. They are located in Fraser next to the Ski Broker and Valley Board and Bike shop, across Hwy 40 from Safeway. Call 970-726-5231 for reservation and information or go to their website.
