News from the River

August 8th, Due to our fantastic winter snow pack, all of our rivers, the Roaring Fork River, the Colorado Rivers, as well as the Frying Pan River, and the Crystal River are running about 10 to 20 percent above the seasonal averages, for both July and now into August.  This has made for some just incredible fly fishing.  The higher flows provide cooler water temperatures and better holding water for the fish, a big advantage to the angler.  At any given point of the day, a hatch is happening.  Midges, Blue Wing Olives, Pale Morning Duns, Red Quills, Caddis, Etc.  The fishing is crazy good all day, and epic the last 2 hours of the day.  Thus, in July, we added a new Happy Hour trip.  We'll meet you about 2 1/2 hours before sunset, and  fly fish those magic hours.  This is the magic hour for some incredible dry fly fishing.  You can play all day, have an early diner, and come land some fish and watch the sunset.  It just doesn't get any better than that.  Additionally, if you want your 2 happy hours at a different time, we can make that happen.  What's your schedule?   10 to 12,  1 to 3, you tell us what you want to do, and how it fits your day, not ours. If you have ever wanted to learn how to fly fish, now is the time.   Additionally, our trophy trout trip to the Bar ZX is really fishing great. Come join the fun, and book us now.

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.
