Northern Colorado Guided Fishing

Looking for quality Smallmouth, Walleye or Trout fishing along Colorado’s Northern Front Range? A guided fishing trip with any one of the Fishful Thinker guides is sure to be the highlight of your season – and a fast track to advancing your angling skills! Fishful Thinker is the only licensed Guide Service for Horsetooth Reservoir, Carter Lake, and the newest member of our stable, Boyd Lake.  These lakes are just minutes from Loveland and Fort Collins, and offer some of the best fishing in Northern Colorado. We are also a short drive from the Denver, Longmont, Windsor or Greeley area as well. While Colorado is known for Trout fishing, Horsetooth Reservoir is a beautiful lake known for abundant numbers of smallmouth bass, large trout, and walleyes. Carter Lake is home to trophy walleyes, largemouth bass, and trout. Our newest fishery is Boyd Lake, an impoundment known for its abundant shad population leading to healthy largemouth and smallmouth bass, walleyes, white bass and others. In all cases, your education is our focus! We provide all tackle and professionally equipped Ranger Bass boats that facilitate a professional and comfortable trip on the water. Please visit our FAQ page for trip details or more information prior to placing a deposit. We offer 5 hours of instruction and fishing time for $425. Prices are inclusive of up to two anglers; a third angler is $50 extra. Gratuity is always worked for and greatly appreciated. Once again, please visit our FAQ page for…well, FAQ’s!
