Our Approach

The best way to enjoy Colorado is to get out in it! Let us introduce you to the state's most beautiful landscapes by placing you on some of the more discrete waters throughout Colorado. Whether the rivers are private or simply removed from the beaten path, we believe that avoiding the crowds will enhance your total experience. Fly fishing is more than just catching fish - it's the overall experience of nature and solitude, all of which make up the fundamentals of Pocketwater!

For those just learning the sport, don't worry! We'll teach you the basics of fly rods, reels, fly lines, leaders, tippet, knots, basic fly casting, reading the water, entomology, stream etiquette, safe handling of fish and other miscellaneous tactics and gear.  Instruction is always tailored to our guests and can occur as part of a guided trip or at any permitted public area.

Our Philosophy

Pocketwater strongly promotes wildlife conservation and the preservation of our lands. We teach the safe handling of fish, adhere to catch and release practices and leave no trace principles. We also participate in the Kick Plastic campaign, removing plastic products from our daily operations.
