“Thanks for a great trip. My clients were thrilled to catch that many fish while learning the basics of fly fishing. It couldn’t have worked out better.”
Colorado Trout Fishing
Headwaters Spike Camp
Winterhawk is Colorado's premier wilderness outfitter, providing horseback fly fishing expeditions into the spectacular Flat Tops Wilderness Area. Fly fishing Colorado’s wilderness lakes and streams is an experience you’ll never forget. These waters may be hard to get to, but they are impossible to forget.
The Flat Tops is an angler's paradise, featuring more than 300 lakes and several hundred miles of trout streams that aren’t accessible by any motor vehicle. Whether catching cutthroat and brook trout by the dozen in a meandering meadow stream, or landing bruisers in a blue alpine lake at timberline, there are opportunities for everyone. Ride through spectacular alpine country while enjoying fast-action fishing, the finest horses, comfortable camps, excellent meals, and the personalized service that Winterhawk is noted for.
From base camp to remote backcountry camps, Winterhawk finds the perfect balance of comfort and rustic wilderness charm. Carpeted wall tents with wood burning stoves accommodate guests, and the home-cooked meals are always satisfying to begin or end a day of fishing, riding, and soaking in the unmatched Flat Tops scenery.
Trips are customized to the needs of each group, from one to eight days and are fully guided. After 30 years as a professional, full-time outfitter, Winterhawk's attention to detail makes a trip for any occasion, truly special. There is no better way to experience alpine fly fishing in Colorado than a horseback adventure into the heart of the Flat Tops
