The Eagle River is the best kept secret in Colorado. From its headwaters in southeastern Eagle County, near the continental divide, the river flows 60 miles to its confluence with the Colorado at Dotsero.
The river is most efficiently fished from a boat, floating the river offers anglers the easiest access to private water and the best fishing. With browns, rainbows, cutthroat and cut-bows the Eagle River consistently fishes well. With prolific hatches and lower than historic metal content the river is averaging 14”-16” trout with possibilities to 20”+.

The fly shop is located on the bank of the Eagle River in the town of Eagle, with plenty of public river access this is a good point to start at, and maps are available for purchase showing access at the shop.
