. While our valley may be better known for the great skiing found at the resorts of Vail and Beaver Creek, we are fortunate enough to have more miles of trout streams nearby than could be fished in a lifetime. These fisheries for wild rainbows, browns, cutthroats, and brookies rival those found anywhere in the United States. We guide everything from small mountain streams, to large western freestone rivers, and famous tailwaters. Most of our scenic trout streams are located within an hour of our shop. All of this lies just a two hour drive from Denver International Airport in the heart of the Vail Valley.
