Fly Fishing in Keystone
Fisherman looking forward to the winter runoff are pleased with the warming temperatures. Water access is increasing every day, and fish are feeding so the opportunities for anglers are expanding! Fisherman head to Keystone, Colorado each year to the Snake River and many smaller streams in the area. Nothing beats a day of stream or pond fishing in the Rocky Mountains for those who are looking to get away from it all! There are a few events this summer that are right up a fisherman's alley too. June 19th is the Fathers Day Fishing Derby through Summit Fly Fishing. The cost is just $25 for Dad and $5 for each child, and includes an hour on Keystone pond with lunch. The July 4th Kid's Fishing Derby is free for all kids 12 and under, as is an additional Kid's Derby on August 6th. You need to provide your own fishing gear. The Derby is strictly catch and release, and will include Guides available for assistance. For information about planning your trip, hiring a fishing guide and reports about river flow, click or call 970.468.8945. Whether you are a seasoned professional or a newbie, there's nothing quite like a quiet, relaxed day of fishing. This can be a perfect guy's weekend away or an opportunity to teach the kids a new skill during your family vacation. Fishing is one of Summit County's most loved hobbies, and one more reason to visit Keystone!
