Home/Fishing FAQs

“What do I need to bring?”

For summer fishing you will want to bring:

Whatever you prefer to drink and eat for the duration, sunglasses, hat, sunscreen, windbreaker/rain jacket, extra warm layers, camera and a fishing license. *Remember weather changes drastically in the high country, always be prepared with warm layers and protection against the rain!

For winter fishing you will want to bring:

Whatever you prefer to drink or eat for the duration, winter clothing; dress as if you were going skiing!  Waterproof/insulated boots (muck boots at least), warm hat, extra warm layers, ski pants, ski jacket, snow gloves/mittens, goggles, sunglasses, camera and a fishing license.

“Do you have a shuttle?”

No, we do not have a shuttle, but Uber can get you back and forth at reasonable rates.

“Where do we meet?”

During the summer we meet at the Dillon Marina on Dock A, just on the lake side of the Tiki Bar.  150 Marina Drive, Dillon, CO 80435

During the winter, access points vary but most likely you will meet your guide in the large parking lot in front of the Dillon Marina Park Pavilion (next door to the Dillon Amphitheatre).  203 W Lodgepole St, Dillon, CO 80435

“Can we keep our fish?”

We allow you to keep Kokanee Salmon of any size, and Rainbow trout under 14″ Arctic Char, Brown Trout and Cutthroat trout must be released. We will clean and filet the fish for you at no additional charge.  Please bring a cooler and ice for transporting purposes in the summer months.

“Can you cook the fish for us?”

No, we do not cook any fish and we have yet to find a restaurant nearby that will cook your catch for you.  Hopefully there will be one soon!

“Are we allowed to bring alcohol on our trips?”

Responsible consumption of alcoholic beverages is fine for those over 21. Please do not bring glass bottles if you can help it.

“Where do I get a fishing license?”

You can get them online at https://www.cpwshop.com/licensing.page, at Walmart, Murdoch’s, or any fishing store or City Market.

“What is the weather like there now?”

The weather can change rapidly here in the high country.  We are located along the continental divide, we have seen it snow every month of the year here and we have beautiful warm days all the way into late fall.  Always be prepared for all extremes of weather – even in the summer!  Check out the local forecast here
