"This is my second trip with Breckenridge Outfitters and Freddy. This year we hit the Colorado River west of Kremmling. It was the perfect day. Temps in the 50's, sunny and no one around. We caught seven. This was only my second time fly fishing and the last one was a year ago. Freddy quickly brought me back up to speed with what he taught me last year. He was patient with someone who has bad habits to break coming from the bass fishing world. He continually checked the hatch and made adjustments throughout the day. I will definitely be back next year."

"I am relatively new to fly fishing and have never used a guide or fished for trout in a lake. As the rivers were blown out in May, the lake was the best option for catching fish. I still have reoccurring memories of catching ~ 25 large lake trout with JP. I used my Orvis Clearwater 6 wt and had a blast. The things that I learned are slowly sinking such as casting with line in the water, the take, the fight, but I still haven't figured out how to hold such a large fish :)
JP was a great guide, great person, and he made it a great day. His knowledge and skill made it happen. I've since bought a used inflatable pontoon boat to try and replicate the experience at home.
I would highly recommend this Orvis store as everyone there was great for my visits and questions.

"Went on a trip with a guide for the first time about a month ago. It was unbelievable. I got introduced to a new sport and got to hang out an enjoy the gorgeous rising mountains of the South Park Valley. Made for my perfect day. Since I was new the guide, Boston George, was immensely helpful and even got me to snag a couple, even though the pictures just show me empty handed cause those things are slippery! Just an unbelievable day though. Couldn't have asked for a more fun way to spend time in the mountains without snow."

Additional Thoughts:Excellent service and customer care!
"My son and I had a wonderful day fishing with Breckenridge Outfitters guide, Pat Rudolph. Pat took about 20 minutes before we hit the water to help us with technical aspects of fly fishing. He then put us on fish and walked us through everything from proper presentation to landing and releasing the fish. I would highly recommend taking the time to learn from Breckenridge outfitters and enjoy a great day on the water with their courteous, professional guides."

"We travel to the Breckenridge area about every year and this last year my wife gave me a gift certificate for a half day fly fishing trip. This was the first time going, but I am sure it will not be the last. Dennis was our guide and he was terrific. He made it easy to learn and shared is vast knowledge of the sport with us. Not only will I use Breckenridge Outfitters again, I will request Dennis as my guide."

"Family of 6 who had never fly fished before, including 7 year old Sadie Belle had a terrific 2 hour on river trip. Shane and Oz were our guides as we split into 2 X 3 person. Shane was REALLY TERRIFIC. Instructional, shared in our excitement of catching 4 rainbow, one of which he estimated to be 20-21 inches. Our family is from Texas and this experience will insure we come back to Breckenridge and Breck Outfitters!"

"I have been fly fishing for twenty-five years. The majority of those years I have spent with Breckenridge Outfitters. My friends and I have fished public and private waters and have never had a day when we were disappointed with our guides. These guys read the water and match the hatch and offer us the advice needed to bring in the fish. Four of us are regulars and have always come home, at he end of fishing trip, ready to call these guys and schedule a time to get back out on the water. If you are a beginner or a old timer, this is the place to come. Don't miss it, you'll never regret it.
Phil Wallace"

"Scott picked my wife and I up at our home in Breck and ferried us to the Pump House put in area on the Colorado. He was personable and informative keeping up a conversation during our hour+ ride. Upon arrival, he took care of everything, setting up our rods and reviewing safety concerns. However, best was his putting us in a position to catch Browns. Between us, we caught 15 or 16 fish on the day, our first this season. For us a great success! Thanks Scott."

"My husband is a bass tournament fisherman so but still always wanted to try fly-fishing. I love the streams and brooks and thought it always looked relaxing and inviting. We were not disappointed. In fact, it was the highlight of our trip to Breckenridge.
Breckenridge Outfitters were excellent and so friendly from the sign in all the way through the experience. Highly recommend them. Thanks for a great time.

"Another great day of fishing with Keith McHugh. Breckenridge Outfitters on my trips has been extremely helpful and professional. They ensure you have a great trip. Keith is a great guide with a great personality. I had planned on going on a river float trip but due to high flow we went to Spinney Mountain Reservoir. What a great place. Keith put me on the right spots and I caught many large rainbows. Since my trips are about a year apart I always need a refresher. He is very patient and willing to help any way he can. He ensures you have a great time catching fish. I'm looking forward to next year Keith. I'm still thinking about the overnight trip if I can find a buddy to go with me."

"Our guide, Keith, took us out on Spinney Reservoir for a fantastic day of fishing. My father and I landed 3 nice rainbows, the largest around 21" and the smallest one at 18". Beautiful scenery, a guide willing to share all of his knowledge and stories, and three big fish add up to a great day. Definitely stop into their store because they are willing to help anyone who has an interest in fishing."

"We had a spectacular time on the South Platte below Spinney reservoir casting to large browns sipping dry caddis (18s). And I do mean large fish as in 18"+. Nice too to find myself making a few roll casts in front of a buffalo who happened to wander by. Our guide was excellent as a teacher for me, my wife, and son (11) who btw bested me by bringing to net a 22" fish. What can you say - it was an epic day!"

"having used Breckenridge outfitters for many years, the one consistent feature remains how much effort the guide takes to " know the client(s)". Fish come, and fish go, but the quality of guides remains foremost. Way to go, Mike from Georgia."
