News from the River

January 26th, It's hard to believe that our day time temperatures, in and around Glenwood Springs, Colorado, are still offering us days in the 40 degree range. Looking at weather forecast, it is expected to be unseasonable warm through the 1st part of February Mid to even upper 40's. This crazy warm weather might not help the skiing, but the fly fishing has been awesome. With the days starting to get longer, we are putting on at about 10 or 12 O'clock and doing 3/4 day or half day floats. Our water temperatures are running way above normal, and our famous March Madness Midge hatch will probably occur much earlier this year, so please book your trips accordingly. We always have some great home made green chile or chicken noodle soup on the boats to warm us up.  It's a fun time of year to fish, as there are very few boats on the river, and the fish have all moved into the deep holes.  They'll get stacked in there like cord wood. So if your legs get a little tired on the ski slopes, take a break and catch some fish.  Now is a great time to book your summer trip, especially for those special hatches that fill up.  Call us for details, 970-404-1339.  And yes, we do have Gift Certificates for Valentines Day. Happy New Year.  Dustin

Float Trips

We highly recommend this trip. You can relax, while enjoying the scenery and cover about 4-7 miles of some of the west’s greatest fishing rivers.

Wade Trips

Our team of guides are ready to take you out for a memorable trip, which might include going to private ranches to where you could catch a fish of a life time.


while you can learn to fly fish on either the float or wade trip, this is more about learning the building blocks to enjoying the sport to the fullest.

What our Happy Clients Have to Say!

Our family has shared some of our best fly fishing memories on the river or fishing Bar ZX with Dustin and John Harcourt! Thanks for creating great memories and fun times.

The Price Family loves Dustin Harcourt

I’ve fished all over the world with a lot of great guides on unforgettable trips. But in my book, nothing beats a day on the river with Dustin Harcourt. Dustin knows the fish and rivers of western Colorado like nobody else, and a day with him is always fun and invigorating. I enjoy getting my family and friends out for trips with Dustin because they invariably walk away with a deep appreciation for the magnificent fishery we have in this region, and how many big and willing trout there are to catch. You put that together with Dustin Harcourt’s personality, and one of his great stream-side meals, and you’ve got a perfect day. Get out there with him – you’ll be glad you did.

There are many guides in the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado, but there is no one better in the RFV for your next fishing trip to this part of Colorado.
