  • I spent a full day on the Arkansas below the Pueblo dam with Juan from Royal Gorge. We were going to fish the river above Canon City, but Royal Gorge was watching the weather and suggested a change based on water clarity and runoff. I appreciate them looking out for me. I had a great time. I consider myself an average fisherman with perhaps 200 days of fly fishing on the water. Juan helped me in all sorts of ways, including tips on casting and mending, reading the water and fighting fish. We caught most of our fish in spots I wouldn't have bothered casting to. He was very personable, willing to share and served a great streamside meal. Thanks for everything.
  • My dad, father-in-law, 9-year-old son and I had a terrific experience with these guys. Friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. Plus our guide went way out of his way to be sure my son got to haul in his first mountain rainbow. And it turned out, he got the biggest one of us all! Great experience, highly recommended.
