Explore the beautiful lakes of Northern Colorado with Northern Colorado (NoCo) Fishing Outfitters! Captain Jed Thompson is a local who has been fishing in the area for over 40+ years. You can find him fishing anywhere around Fort Collins year-round, even when the lakes are frozen! The outdoor world is his lifelong passion, as he’s not only an avid angler and a guide but also an aquatic biologist.

Capt. Jed offers different types of guided fishing trips through the year. You can fish from the boat in the spring, summer & fall. Then fish on a frozen lake during winter. Check out his profile and find what suits you best.

Boat trips are great fishing fun, so come aboard his 19’ Lund boat. She’s equipped with a full compliment of comfortable seats, quality rods & reels, Minkotta trolling motor, chart plotter, and a quality sonar. The boat accommodates up to 4 guests.

You’ll be fishing on Boyd Lake at Boyd Lake State Park in Loveland Colorado. Depending on season and which technique you want to try out, you could be trolling, casting, or jigging. Your main targets for the day could be Rainbow Trout, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, White Bass, and Walleye.

I love fishing! I have been fishing Colorado's lakes and rivers for over 40+ years. I spent 13 years as an assistant fisheries biologist and researcher for a state wildlife agency. I have a Bachelors of Science in Fisheries Biology from Colorado State University and a Masters of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences from the University of Florida. I want to share my passion and knowledge of fishing with others who visit Colorado. It would be my pleasure to take you, your family, and your friends fishing on a Northern Colorado lake.
