Float Fishing

The larger rivers we guide are best accessed with Rafts and Drift boats giving our guests access to incredible scenery while fishing some treasured secret spots that can only be accessed by boat. Fishing season never ends in Colorado and our boats are in the water all year long. Whether you are new to fly fishing or an experienced angler, fishing from a boat is an iconic way of fly fishing in the west. Full and half day trips are available every day. We can choose the best stretch of river depending on seasonal flows and hatches insuring you the best experience possible. Let the certified guides from Nova Guides navigate the river while you and yours enjoy a beautiful Colorado day on the Eagle, the Colorado and the Roaring Fork!

Miniturn Anglers

MinturnAnglersPut simply, no other guide service consistently produces the fly fishing experience that we provide on over 500 miles of river throughout Colorado’s Front Range & the Vail Valley.
We are fly fishing guides committed to fly fishing. We are not a seasonal mass tourism fly fishing operation like you will find in most resort towns. We know our local water intimately and are not learning it as we go. We are making adjustments to your flies and rig in advance because we know that an extra split shot is the difference between a fish or no fish in the next spot.
