Just remember going in that this is North America’s most expensive ski resort.

Vail Fly Fishing Float Trip

For anglers with beginner to advanced fly fishing abilities; float trips are an amazing way to see lots of fantastic scenery and learn new fishing tactics. Float fishing takes place on the larger rivers of the area in a high desert or sub alpine setting. Float trips also offer the ability to fish stretches of water otherwise inaccessible to wade fishing. All Minturn Anglers boats are comfortable and well outfitted with fishing braces, seats and even tables and chairs for shore breaks and meals.How We Fish…Side Drifting: Side drifting nymphs under an indicator is the most productive way to catch fish on any given day. We generally don’t get out of the boat, but instead fish ledges, drops and deep water where both good number and size of fish hold. You will learn how to read featureless water and find fish in spots many would never fish.Streamers: When conditions allow for it, or when you decide you have caught enough fish on nymphs, we are always happy to show you how to chuck some meat. In spots with good bank structure we will cast towards the edges. More often than not though, we fish sink tips and swing flies deep through the middle of runs. You will learn how to effectively fish streamers on sunny days.
