Welcome to River?s Edge

Hello, and welcome to River’s Edge. My name is John Taylor, and I live and work on the South Platte River across from the ?Hole in the Wall? in Trumbull, CO. I?m passionate about Colorado fly fishing, and I?m excited to share my ?little bit of heaven? with you.

I have been fly fishing for over 30 years, and have guided rivers in Colorado and Wyoming for the past ten years. My partners and I are passionate about helping others – novices and experienced anglers alike. Learn the art and technical aspects of fly fishing. We?d like to share the knowledge we?ve gained over many years, and countless days on the water. Let us help you create some great angling memories.

If you?re new to fly fishing, let us introduce you to some of the most accessible fly-fishing waters in Colorado. If you?re a veteran of other waters, come explore the diversity of the South Platte River with us.

Join us for a breathtaking and relaxing day on the river. Your fly casting will improve, you will gain a better understanding of the aquatic food sources in the water. You might learn a few knots, and some other tricks of the trade.

We like to start our days early and cover as much water as possible or needed. “You never leave fish to find fish!” After a morning of fishing, we will enjoy a delicious freshly prepared lunch, where we can relax and swap fishing stories before heading back to the river to complete our day.

We love the landscape, the river, the trout and the habitat. This is Gold Medal Water. We practice catch-and-release on all trips. We are a fully insured and licensed Outfitter in the State of Colorado, always in compliance with Colorado State Laws.
