NoCo Fishing Outfitters – Ice Fishing

NoCo Fishing Outfitters offers guided fishing trips all over Fort Collins area. Captain Jed Thompson runs the trips in Norther Colorado’s lakes, ponds, and rivers year-round. This page focuses on his ice fishing trips but you should check out his profile and see other possibilities throughout the year.

Ice fishing season usually lasts from mid-December until the end of February. Capt. Jed runs these fishing trips in lakes, mostly Boyd, Boedecker, and Lon Hagler. Since the fishing spots change, he’ll be in touch with you regarding the exact meeting point. He can pick you up free of charge if you’re within a 5-mile distance. You’ll reach the lake by car and then go on foot to the fishing spot.

Once there, the captain will drill the hole and then the waiting game begins. Your main targets will be Crappie, Sunfish, Yellow Perch, and Steelhead. You can keep the catch and the captain will clean it for you.

Since you’ll be on a frozen lake, warm clothing goes without saying. In case the weather gets windy, the captain has tents for protection. You also need to purchase your fishing license on time and bring food and drinks for the day.

Get ready for the hottest bite from the frozen lake! NoCo Fishing Outfitters will make your icy adventure a unique experience, you only need to book your spot on time.

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.
