With its headwaters in Rocky Mountain National Park, the Big Thompson River just below the town of Estes Park is a classic canyon trout river. The personality of this 30-foot-wide trout stream is best described as pocket water and riffles.
Because of the diversity of water and abundance of trout, the Big Thompson provides a remarkable walk-wading fly-fishing experience for the never-ever or the well-fished angler. The 10-12 inch rainbow or brown trout will take dry flies or nymphs. Big Thompson River fly fishing is an exerpience that is second to none.
