Fly Fishing in Fort Collins

Fly Fishing

The Cache la Poudre River is truly a hidden treasure, with majestic cliffs and intriguing rock formations enveloped in ponderosa and lodgepole pines, sagebrush, mountain mahogany and aspen. Not to mention the bounty of trout and other native fish species filling the river! While you enjoy the great fishing along the Cache la Poudre, remember to take a look around and experience the beauty of the canyon. Our partner outfitters can set you up with guides, rods, and more.
