Ice Fishing Trips

Don’t let the cold weather fool you. With advancements in technology and top of the line ice huts and heaters, ice fishing is an extremely comfortable and enjoyable experience.  Our guides use Eskimo ice shelters and all the latest equipment to help get you on the fish while staying warm.

When out on a trip with us, anglers could catch Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Yellow Perch, and/or Kokanee Salmon.  If you would like to target one species over the others please let us know but no matter what we catch you can guarantee it will be an exciting adventure.

With the decline of Trophy Lake Trout in Blue Mesa Reservoir we don’t feel that it is ethical to offer trophy Lake Trout trips at this time.  That doesn’t mean that we may not catch a Lake Trout when out on the water but it is our company policy that all lake trout be released so that they can continue to live and grow to their full potential.

Our fishing trips are typically 4 hours long but if you would like to shorten or lengthen your trip we are happy to accommodate your needs.  Weather you are on vacation, want to have a weekend adventure with the family, or you just want to try ice fishing for the first time, we will make sure you have a quality experience that will leave a smile on your face.   Contact Cody Rowe – Head Ice Fishing guide, or Stormy Cochran if you have any questions and to book your trip today!
