Guided Fly Fishing Trips & Instruction

Riffle and Rise offers guided walk/wade fly fishing trips and instruction on a premier stretch of private water on the Taylor River in the Colorado Rockies. Located in the heart of Taylor Canyon with access to a mile of river, the focus here is on providing a quality experience in a beautiful setting where anglers can learn about fly fishing.

There are plenty of trout in the pocket water and pools throughout this stretch of river. And the river-side property includes a nice lawn for casting instruction. Management of the fishery and access to the river are shared with our neighbors, including Eleven’s Taylor River Lodge located right next door.

For those interested in gaining a more in-depth knowledge of fly fishing, there is additional emphasis on instruction both on and off the river. From casting to rigging, reading the water, matching the hatch, and learning specialized tactics such as Euro Nymphing, the experience is customized to meet your needs. The more you learn about fly fishing, the more self-sufficient you will be on the water.

All guided trips are half-day, walk/wade trips, which last about 4 hours. They are focused on the prime part of the day with the most insect and fish activity. During the summer season, this is typically from around 10 AM to 2 PM or 11 AM to 3 PM. Conditions will vary, so the times can be adjusted accordingly. Availability is very limited and advance reservations are required. Rates listed below include private water access fees.
