Fishing – Alpine Lakes

We offer both single and multi day fishing trips in to the Holy Cross Wilderness. .

There is nothing quite like combining a horse back ride with a day of fishing in a glacial lake near timberline. You will depart the stables for the trail-head around 9:00 for the two hour ride to West Tennessee Lakes. During the heat of the day, while the fishing are hiding in the shadows, you can enjoy stunning panaromic views while having lunch or go for a quick loop around the bowl on horseback. You should return to the stablesDSC_0740 around 4:30. The cost is $175 per person and includes lunch, beverages, and fishing gear if required. If you would like someone to help with your technique or assist in fly selection a guide can be added for $200.

For multi day stays we maintain a drop camp nestled in the trees a few minutes walk from the lower lakes. We can drop you off and let you stay a few days by yourself. Or, if you prefer we can leave a wrangler/cook with you for the duration of your trip.

The guided trip is for a minimum of 2 people, starting as low as $795 for the first night, $225 per person per night thereafter. The price includes the guide along with the complete drop camp featuring separate eating and sleeping tents, firewood, horses, and food.
