NoCo Fishing Outfitters – Shore Fishing

NoCo Fishing Outfitters will take you on an unforgettable freshwater fishing adventure! Captain Jed has over 35 years of fishing experience in this area and he knows all the good spots in the lakes, rivers, and ponds around Fort Collins. You can go ice fishing in winter, and fish from the shore or from the boat when the ice melts – the captain can accommodate everything. Just take a look at his profile to see what else he offers.

If you prefer staying on the shore, your captain offers up trips that are perfect for you. These on-foot adventures are a great solution for people who’ve never fished before or families with kids. Captain Jed will show you the basics and you’ll land your catch in no time! You’ll fish around local lakes and ponds, wherever the fish are biting. Just make sure to wear comfortable shoes because there’s going to be lots of walking.

Your targets for the day will be Rainbow Trout, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Catfish, Sunfish, Yellow Perch, and Carp. In case you want to go fly fishing, note that only 2 people can go. On other trips, the captain welcomes 4 guests.

The captain will cover your fishing equipment, lures, and live bait. You need to purchase your fishing license and bring snacks and drinks for the day. Since you’ll stay on the shore, bring bug spray as well.

A trip with NoCo Fishing Outfitters is always an enjoyable adventure. Come and join them today!

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.
