Front Range Anglers is committed to providing you with the best Colorado fly fishing guides and guided fly fishing experience possible. We have assembled one of the most professional and top notch guide teams in Boulder and on the front range. There are many fly-by-night guide operations out there, but unlike some others, our guides are properly permitted, CPR certified and fully insured. Do you really want to trust your one day on the water in the Rocky Mountains to someone who just does guiding on the side? Our professional guides are on the water every week, and during the height of the guiding season, typically every day.
With over twenty-five guides on staff during the height of the season, we can typically accommodate any size group, any day of the year. So whether you're looking for a guided day of fly fishing during a family reunion, college visit, bachelor party, couples day away, or business trip, we can customize your guided trip to exactly what you're looking for.
