Learn to Fish

One Day Fishing Trip on the Flat Tops

Take a horseback ride up to one of the many Alpine Lakes for a fun day of fishing. We furnish the guide, horses, and lunch. The cost is $275/per person. We are pretty confident you’ll catch a fish…but in case you don’t, we have a realistic fake fish to take a picture on your return and call the day a success!  Two person minimum.
