Highly recommend! We fished with Cameron near Maroon Bells. Neither my friend nor I had any experience fly fishing and we both had a great time and caught 2 fish each! Cameron is extremely patient and just an all around nice guy. He brought us to a beautiful spot and is very good at teaching people how to fly fish. Ask for Cameron!

Great guys! Scott was very easy to work with and set up an amazing float trip with my guide, Pierce. Pierce was so knowledgeable and patient, and most importantly was just as excited about catching fish as I was. Simply a great experience that I will certainly do again! Michael B, Atlanta, GA

Highly recommend. Fished with Cam on the Roaring Fork. Cam put us on beautiful fish right away. Cam is an excellent guide. Highly knowledgeable and a good teacher. He also has tremendous patience. My brother in law had never fly fished before and Cam helped him catch trout in a technical part of the river. Can’t wait to come back and fish with Cam again.

Amazing experience and amazing guides! We had Nicky and JD for guides. We had Nicky first and had such an amazing time we ended up booking the next day as well. Both Nicky and JD are extremely knowledgeable, great teachers, friendly, caring, and truly made our experience an 11/10. Highly recommend if you are wanting to try fly fishing or even if you have been before - they are great at reading skill level and adjusting accordingly. Don’t think on this one, just book with Aspen Trout Guides. Unforgettable experience!

We had the BEST experience! We're a family of six (ages 12-43) and had three guides. We had the most beautiful drive up Independence Pass to the most beautiful lake with amazing views. Learning was smooth and we started catching fish within the first half hour. As a bonus, a moose came to say hi!! An experience we will never forget!!

Our first experience fly fishing was perfect. Nicky was a total pro, full of patience, and had us on the fish all day. His knowledge is tops and anyone being guided by him will walk away a better angler. Can't wait to go again!

Stellar experience. These guys are pros and chill in the best of ways. Cam guided us on a beautiful and relaxing afternoon fishing in the river. Perfect across the board, down to Cam's gentle and nuanced understanding of the water and the well being of the fish.

Scott and the team at Aspen Trout Guides do an outstanding job. I've done several outings with them and they are always friendly, flexible and very knowledgable. They work well with any type of angler working with newcomers to help them understand the basic fundamentals of fly fishing as well as fine-tuning the skills of experienced fishermen. I have truly enjoyed fishing with Nikki (one of their guides) .... he's very knowledgable and a great teacher
