  • I spent a full day on the Arkansas below the Pueblo dam with Juan from Royal Gorge. We were going to fish the river above Canon City, but Royal Gorge was watching the weather and suggested a change based on water clarity and runoff. I appreciate them looking out for me. I had a great time. I consider myself an average fisherman with perhaps 200 days of fly fishing on the water. Juan helped me in all sorts of ways, including tips on casting and mending, reading the water and fighting fish. We caught most of our fish in spots I wouldn't have bothered casting to. He was very personable, willing to share and served a great streamside meal. Thanks for everything.
  • My dad, father-in-law, 9-year-old son and I had a terrific experience with these guys. Friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. Plus our guide went way out of his way to be sure my son got to haul in his first mountain rainbow. And it turned out, he got the biggest one of us all! Great experience, highly recommended.
  • I have been shopping at Royal Gorge Anglers for years for all my fly fishing gear. They always help me select the right gear I need for destination trips and my personal day to day gear. Very knowledgeable and never pushy.
  • Very knowledgeable staff. Great recommendations. Amazing selection. Definitely recommend.
  • Was an amazing experience. Our guide Paul was incredible. He was very knowledgeable and patient as this was our first time fly fishing. We did the Backcountry trip and was all we could ask for. Highly recommend the shop and most definitely our guide Paul Vertrees.
