The Broadmoor Fly Fishing School & Fish House

This is our most popular fly fishing offering at the Broadmoor. Join our professional fly fishing guides at the Broadmoor Fish House (an Adirondack style cabin located on the 6th hole of the historic East Golf Course) for a two hour intro to fly fishing, which includes a 20 minute casting intro and then fishing in the pond. This course is perfect for the beginner to intermediate angler. Short on time and can already throw that line 60 feet? Come out to the Fish House and we’ll guide you for two hours of fishing and coaching to help you be more effective on the water. Don’t scoff at the idea of throwing flies to stocked trout: several ten pound trout have been caught and released back into the lake! Reservations are required for the two hour intro to fly fishing lesson at The Broadmoor’s Fish House.

Fly Casting Instruction

Curious about fly fishing as a sport? Reserve a spot and come out to The Broadmoor’s Fish House for a one hour casting lesson. You will learn the basic overhead cast and the roll cast. This is a great way to get introduced to the art of fly fishing without too much commitment. If you already know how to cast, let our professional guides give you a tune up to maximize your time on the water. Either way, we know you’ll be hooked! Reservations are required for the one hour casting lesson at The Broadmoor’s Fish House.

Guided Fly Fishing Trips

Join the Broadmoor’s professional fly fishing guides for an exciting half-day or full-day trip on the water. From the wide open fields of the Spinney Mountain State Wildlife Area to the awe inspiring cliffs surrounding Cheeseman Canyon, we have some of the best fishing access in the state. The Broadmoor also has private access on Tarryall Creek through the Orvis Endorsed Broadmoor Fly Fishing Camp and Eagle Rock Ranch. Take your time and slowly cast dries to quiet, rising trout at the Fly Fishing Camp. Or throw big bushy dry flies to wild Browns and Cutthroats at Eagle Rock Ranch. If you’re lucky, you can achieve the Colorado Grand Slam in one afternoon by catching a Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, and Brook Trout all in the same day.

THE BROADMOOR FLY FISHING CAMP
