Ice fishing for the whole family, novices, and kids. The best fishing in Steamboat Springs.

Stagecoach State Park sets the stage for great recreation in the lush Yampa Valley by Steamboat Springs. Vistas and views are backdrops to the 820-acre reservoir providing renowned Ice Fishing. Join us at Stagecoach State Park, only 17 miles from Steamboat Springs, CO, for great trout and pike fishing. Stagecoach Reservoir is well-known for its hard-hitting trout and Northern Pike fishing, with large pike caught every year. Stagecoach Reservoir is known for its fast-growing rainbows and a fantastic forage base. All these factors combined allow Stagecoach to be a great place to wrangle a monster trout or pike. We utilize either Snowmobiles or a Polaris Ranger with a heated cab to access the reservoir. Big Ed’s can customize a trip that will please everyone from the avid angler to the entire family. With it’s proximity to Steamboat, Stagecoach offers a great way to view a mountain lake in style while catching the fish of a lifetime. Big Ed’s Fishing Ventures offers both half and full-day trips.

On a Big Ed’s Fishing Trip, we provide everything (Tackle, Rods, Reels, and a heated Shelter) The only thing we do not provide is a one-day fishing license available online or at numerous local shops.
