  • May 29, 2015 2015 May Fishing Report
    Summer is here in Breckenridge and so is the snowmelt. The rivers are running large right now as the runoff commences. Water clarity is not yet an issue on the blue river, ten mile or the snake river inlet. A Variety of patterns are still working, nymphs and stonefly nymphs, San Juan worms and pheasant tails should produce. You could even throw Dry flies like the parachute Adams and see good results. The reservoir water temp is in the high forties and has been producing big artic char and big brown trout. The Kokanee salmon need a little warmer surface temperature before we start seeing them strike, probably mid June we'll see the Kokanee. Great fishing right now here in Breckenridge Colorado!
  • May 8, 2015 2015 Spring Fishing Report
    Spring in Breckenridge is right around the corner and the fishing has been hot as of lately with mostly rainbow trout and Kokanee salmon biting. Jigs with various colors are working well. Salmon eggs and other smell baits are also producing. Bite Depths vary again as the fish are not as active during the colder water and you have to go searching for the bite.
  • May 9, 2015 Fishing Report January 2015
    Warm weather forecasted for the start of February and the char are biting on various jigs and oddly enough cheese! We are catching all species with the rainbows being the predominant bite. Ice is sufficient with thickness being around 8-12 inches depending on where your at on the lake. Look for the bays and river inlets for best results.
  • May 9, 2015 The rivers have calmed back down!
    The rivers have calmed back down to more of a manageable flow with great fishing opportunities abound. Mysis shrimp, midges, stone, and caddis flies are a good choice right now. The fishing will continue to improve as river flows drop and hatches continue. The reservoir has been fishing well with retrieval type lure fishing and trolling. Bring your bugspray and sunscreen.
  • May 9, 2015 Winter Fishing Report
    Ice fishing season here in the high country has arrived and we are running trips starting December 2nd. The reservoir should be totally frozen by first of the year, hopefully sooner! As ice over starts get your hut and heater out or make a reservation with us, its almost time to catch your trophy dinner!
  • May 9, 2015 May fishing in the high country
    You never know what may will bring in the high country, and for fishing success that means picking your days carefully. This last snowstorm will make the fishing a bit slower due to colder water temps although if you can pick a day when the sun is shining strikes will be more prevalent. Summer trout fishing is almost here!
