What Sets Us Apart?
The dream to start AFA started 40 years ago when Randy Ford (founder/owner) had caught his first Lake Dillon brown trout. As a 4th generation Coloradan, his passion for the alpine lakes of Colorado has only increased as he gets to share it with his guides and clients! Knowledge of this level allows us as a team to produce top notch quality trips-catching the biggest fish and setting Colorado state records!

About Lake Dillon
Dillon Reservoir, often known as Lake Dillon, is a huge freshwater reservoir in Summit County, Colorado, United States. Lake Dillon was formed when the Dillon Reservoir Dam was built in 1963 to provide storage for Denver’s water supply. The old town of Dillon would be flooded and many of the buildings were moved to the current towns of Dillon and Silverthorne. It took a few years for the reservoir to fill up and by the mid-seventies Lake Dillon became one of Colorado’s premier Brown trout fisheries. Lake Dillon is a great place to go fishing in the summer or winter. Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Kokanee Salmon, and Arctic Char can all be found in the lake.
It is bordered by the cities of Frisco, Silverthorne, and Dillon and is located south of I-70. It is a reservoir for the city of Denver, with Denver Water in charge of its waters. Copper Mountain, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, and Breckenridge are within a short drive from the reservoir.
