Back Country and River Fishing Trips

Frazier Outfitting offers horseback access, for either day trips or overnight pack trip to some of the finest back country water in the state of Colorado. The upper Rio Grande Valley offers tons of fishing opportunities, but many of the best are accessible only with a very long hike or a short horse ride. We can take you on horseback to several different streams, rivers and even high country lakes where the fish are plentiful and beautiful. All of these rivers, streams and lakes receive minimal fishing pressure and offer quality back country fishing for native Rio Grande cutthroat, brooks, browns and rainbows. Sizes and quantities vary by location and fishing pressure but most of our guests are amazed at the size of the fish that come out of these waters. We can match your trip to the type water you like and what criteria you use to define a successful day of fishing. Some people like a lot of fish, some big fish and some just want to sit by the stream and soak it all in. We can arrange a trip for different fishing experience every day for all levels of angling skill.

When planning your trip, keep in mind that you will be traveling by horseback. You’ll need to bring all of your own fishing equipment including multiple piece sectioned rods that are easy to transport. You will also need to have your tackle, waders and nets organized in a way that’s easy to pack onto the horses.
