Local Trips
The Laughing Grizzly offers guided trips in Rocky Mountain National Park and other local waters. Our experienced and knowledgeable certified guides will ensure you have a memorable fishing trip.

We offer 4 hour, 6 hour or full day trips of 8 or more hours. While guided trips can sometimes be arranged on short notice, we usually require 24-48 hours for scheduling. We can also arrange trips on private waters, including trophy trout fishing at North Fork ranch near Bailey, CO, and locally at Sylvan Dale Ranch and Red Feather Lakes. We need at least three days notice in order to make private water arrangements.

All trips require a 50% deposit with balance due upon completion of the trip. Cancellation of a scheduled trip requires 24 hours notice for a full refund.

The Laughing Grizzly also arranges and leads trips to exotic locations around the world. No matter where in the US or the world you'd like to go, we can assist you with the arrangements.

Past destinations have included:

Alaska- We feature "do it yourself" trips to a variety of Alaskan destinations. The Laughing Grizzly will assist you in choosing a location, a lodge or backcountry site, flights, including fly outs, and all the details that help make your trip a success.

Patagonia- The Andes, volcanos, rivers and trout of South America will blow your mind. There are many great lodges that provide professional guides, great accommodations and fine dining.

Bahamas-The Bahamas are a hotbed of bonefish and tarpon fishing. Swain's Cay on South Andros has been hosting Laughing Grizzly trips for several years, and their guides are absolutely top-notch.

Christmas Island-Wanna catch big bonefish and trevally? Christmas Island is for you. There are any other species of sporting fish to be taken as well. This dot in the middle of the Pacific Ocean is a real treasure for the fly fisher. We'll help you set it up.
