NoCo Fishing Outfitters – Boat

Explore the beautiful lakes of Northern Colorado with NoCo Fishing Outfitters! Captain Jed Thompson is a local who has been fishing in the area for over 35 years. You can find him fishing anywhere around Fort Collins year-round, even when the lakes are frozen! The marine 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 fishing trips – you can fish from the shore, on the boat, or on a frozen lake during winter. Check out his profile and find what suits you best.

If fishing from the boat sounds best for you, then come aboard his 19’ Lund boat. She’s equipped with a Mercury trolling motor, chart plotter, and a quality sonar. The boat accommodates up to 4 guests. However, if you want to go fly fishing, only 2 guests can do it at a single time.

The captain does pickups in Fort Collins, anywhere within 5 miles, so get in touch to arrange your meeting spot. You’ll be fishing on Boyd, Boedecker, or Lon Hagler local ponds. Depending on what bites and which technique you want to try out, you could be trolling, casting, drifting, or jigging. Your main targets for the day will be Rainbow Trout, Walleye, Perch, Crappie, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, and White Bass. If you prefer night trips, you could catch Catfish, Bass, and Walleye.

The captain will provide you with rods, reels, lures, and live bait. You’ll need to purchase your fishing license and bring your food and drinks for the day.

I love fishing! I have been fishing Colorado's lakes and rivers for over 35 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 pond, river, or lake.
