South Slope Lakes Hosted Fly Fishing Trip

July 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th



As a shop, one of our favorite destinations to fly fish are high alpine lakes. The serenity, beauty, and remoteness of these lakes makes them worth the energy to get there! And, oh yeah, the chance to hook up with beautiful cutthroat trout is awesome.


Join us for this journey to one of our backyard's hidden gems. The South Slope of Pikes Peak reservoirs opened for the first time last year, and hold some of the most beautiful fish we have ever seen!


We are offering a hosted fly fishing trip for a limited number of anglers on each of the following dates: Thursday 7/9, Friday 7/10, Saturday 7/11, and Sunday 7/12. Although not a guided trip, nor a class, our hosts will assist you in the techniques, methods, and strategies for chasing native cutthroat trout. We will fish streamers, dries, and maybe even some nymphs on this day trip.


Participants will be responsible for providing their own backpacks, water, rods, flies, and terminal tackle. We do have rods for rent, if needed. Lunch (sandwiches) will be provided for each person, as well. This trip requires participants to be in decent physical condition as hiking at 10,000 feet plus is necessary.




  • Liability waiver must be signed to participate.
  • This is NOT a beginner fly fishing excursion and some experience is preferred.
  • Preregistration is required

**This class will be offered Thursday 7/9, Friday 7/10, Saturday 7/11, and Sunday 7/12**


Participants will meet at 5:30 a.m. at Angler's Covey with 30 minutes to purchase any last minute essentials. ALL purchases for this trip will be discounted 20% during this time. We will have guides and staff on hand to assist you in fly selection, leader/tippet selection, etc.


Hosts and participants will leave to the destination at 6:00 a.m. and will return around 3:00 p.m. The drive is about 1.5 hours from Colorado Springs.
Transportation is provided.


COST: $75.00 per person
