The featured photo is from a 2009 writeup by our own Craige Stainton!   Check out the Sept. 2009 newsletter article about the Eagle River here: https://colowomenflyfishers.org/wp-content/uploads/sep2009.pdf

POC: Robin Schmidt, trips@colowomenflyfishers.org, 720-339-8879

Location: Near Woltcott , CO

Meet Location:  Let’s meet at the Woltcott BLM Campground ($7 Day use fee for parking, boat launch and restrooms). Same as “Climbing Rock Campground” on these awesome maps!

Meet Time: 9:00 am

Map/Directions:   Follow I-70 W to CO-131 N in Eagle County. Take exit 157 from I-70 W. Take exit 157 for CO-131 N toward Wolcott/Steamboat spqs. Turn left on US-6 W and follow about 1.7 miles to the camping area.   Access to the Wolcott Campground is easy via I-70 and Highway 6. The campground is on the north side of Highway 6. There is a sign at the entrance, but it is easy to miss. After turning into the campground entrance, proceed to the bottom of the hill. The day use area is to the left/straight ahead, while the camping area is to the right. 8498, Edwards, CO 81632, Map linkhttps://tinyurl.com/BLMCampgroun


  • From the Wolcott BLM Campground ($7 day use fee) we can stay all day or move to several different locations including west on US 6 to  Horn Ranch, Red Canyon or Gypsum Ponds (but has that blue algae right now so not recommended), behind the Wolcott post office or even back to the Gore Creek confluence near Minturn.  I hear ther is great water about a mile upstream from Gypsum Ponds – you have to hike back upstream.  Check out these Eagle River Maps from Vail Valley Anglers!

  • Hopper dropper rigs using darker colored hopper or chubby, foam golden stone with droppers such as Rainbow Warriors, Black Rs2, Yellow Sally Nymphs, Pmd Emergers, Chocolate Thunders, Element Baetis, pheasant tail
  • Dry flies in the afternoon including Caddis, Yellow sally, Trico and BWOs, Parachutes, Comparadun
  • Streamers on a cloudy day

Fly Shops/Reports, Guided Fly fishing or Floats:  


  • Camping – Wolcott BLM Campground (fee) , 8498, Edwards, CO 81632, Yoeman campground (fee) near Eagle, Sylvan Lake State Park (fee).
  • Inn at the Riverwalk, 27 Main St, Edwards, CO 81632, http://www.innatriverwalk.com, I can definitely recommend, but I’m sure it’s a little pricier than other places in the area, but it’s right next door to Zinos!
