Learn about fishing in RMNP from local guide/expert Kirk Bien of Kirk’s Flyshop located in Estes Park Colorado
Kirk Bien has been fly fishing for 20 years, and guiding for 12 years. His favorite places to fly fish are Rocky Mountain National Park, specifically Forest Canyon and the Big Thompson River below Lake Estes. Kirk also guides backpacking and llama pack trips.
Rocky Mountain National Park is a protected area where fly fishing activities are balanced with efforts to restore and perpetuate natural aquatic environments and life. Populations of at least four species of trout exist in the park – brown, brook, rainbow, and cutthroat. RMNP, headwaters for the Colorado, Big Thompson, Cache la Poudre, and Fall Rivers, provides high country stream and lake fishing. Fishing opportunities in the RMNP range from high country catch and release fly fishing to big lake fishing to wintertime ice fishing.
