Fly fishing is available up and down the Yampa and Elk rivers. Near town it is catch and release only. There are three prime fly fishing outfitters in town (see our website http://www.mdrouze.com/photos/page5/
) for a listing and links. At any of these you can buy or ent gear, get directions, advise, lessons or hire a guide who will have multiple rods for you, provide the gear and will insure you of a catch. We use Steamboat Flyfisher which is owned and operated by Nordic Olympic medalist Johnny Spillane.
