We are an energetic, hard working group of professional guides that eat, sleep and breathe fly fishing. We do this full-time, year-round and have dedicated our lives to sharing our passion with others.

  • I first fished with Capt. Chris Wells roughly 20 years ago. Chris took my 15 year old son and me to the William’s Fork for a day on the water. I had fished there a few times previously, and had done "OK", but nothing like what we did with Chris. His knowledge, technique, and focus on the water are incredible. He is truly Fishy! Since then we've spent at least thirty days fishing together and he has become a close friend.

  • I’ve fished with Chris for many years. Two of his best guide attributes are his vast knowledge of local water in Colorado and his amazing ability to see fish. Over a week I would fish multiple rivers in Colorado with Chris and with his help, I did well on all of them. On the second half of my trips, I’d fish the same water alone and never came close to duplicating my success. Besides his skills as a great guide, he is just a heck of a nice guy. Never pass up a chance to spend a day on the water with him.

  • Please do yourself a favor and take a day and go the fish the North Fork Meadows with Chris Wells and his guides. This property is perfect for the first timer or for the 25 year angler who wants an amazing day of fishing close to Denver. Chris is one of the best teachers I have ever fished with. He takes time to make sure everyone learns something on his trips. You take pictures of the ones in the net and you tell stories about the ones that got away. I would highly recommend doing some fishing with Captain Chris Wells at the North Fork Meadows.
