A Trip Advisor Blog Post on Fly Fishing Colorado for the first time with guide Cooper Anderson
Written by: Julia Dimon: https://www.travelocity.com/inspire/fly-fishing-colorado/
Katie and Ryan were the best! They both had the patience for our family of 5, with 2 young children. Our 7 year old caught the first fish of the day. The four hours went by so quickly, everyone wants to go back.
My two sons and no spent the morning out on the Eagle River with Cooper and we had a BLAST! Cooper was incredibly patient with three beginners, have us great instruction and we all caught fish. Had a GREAT time! Thanks Cooper!

Just to let you know how much Adam and I appreciated your guiding and fly fishing instruction.
It’s always a pleasure to work with folks that have a passion for a subject and know how to
share buy teaching others, especially novices like Adam and me. We enjoyed our day out on the river
Immensely and this will become something we will continue to do. Thank you also for your offer to forward
photos you kindly took.
Again, our sincerest thanks,
Wanted to show you that you did such a good job guiding us last Summer, My wife Billie now has the bug! Here we are on our home stream in PA. Thanks again & hope to see you next time we get out your way.
Hello Katie, We are home and playing catch-up on all the things that didn’t get done by themselves while we were gone. However, the great fishing Mark and I had with you on the Eagle River carries us through. Attached are a few photos for you. Mark couldn’t stop talking about how much he learned about fly fishing from you. And I never felt unattended to. How did you accomplish that? We look forward to fishing with you again. And also with Cooper.
Hi Katie , Thank you for being our guide . Kathy said you were the best guide she has ever experienced and really enjoyed your company. We went to Breckenridge today and drove up to the Boreas pass. I hooked onto a really big fish using the hopper this afternoon on Gore creek. It went downstream through fast water and could not stop it. It finally pulled free. I hooked it under a log. It was fun. Thanks for everything.

I have not fly fished in years, but Katie Anderson’s patients and great work at changing the flys and weights to the conditions was great. My good friend and I had a great time. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to enjoy your fishing and learn a few things. I will use her again!!
For the second year in a row I had the pleasure of fishing the Eagle River through Gore Creek Outfitters with guide Katie Anderson. This year it was adults only so we hit some waters more difficult to enter than with kids. The fishing was spectacular and Katie worked hard examining the surrounding, looking at the hatches, tying and re-tying flies, adding weights, changing depths and everything a seasoned guide would do to ensure maximum number of bites. I am already looking forward to the summer of 2015.
Cooper is an incredible guide; he is extremely knowledgeable and very patient. After a brief tutorial we were in the water and within minutes, I hooked my first fish. Cooper was coaching me the entire time I was in the river; how to cast, where to cast, where to step, and when to move. He made me feel confident and I had a wonderful experience! I would request Cooper again!
Gore Creek is an excellent outfitter in Avon/Beaver Creek. They hooked my son and I up with guide Katie Anderson. Katie picked us up right on time at our lodging in Beaver Creek ready with waders, boots, rods and plenty of gear. We enjoyed fishing two different spots on the Eagle River where Katie put my son and I on plenty of quality bites from browns and rainbows. Due to her knowledge and attention, my 8 year old is totally hooked on river fly fishing and is counting the days to our return to Colorado and more fishing with Katie.
