The event encompasses three amazing days of fishing, eating, socializing and relaxing.
Thursday: All teams check in Thursday afternoon at the Almont Resort in Almont, Colorado. Settle into your riverside lodging (included in your event fee) before joining us for cocktails and dinner (also included), starting at 6:30 p.m. in the event building of the Resort. You can cast a few lines that evening right at the resort while meeting the other participants. As a bonus, you will also receive a welcome packet and gift bag loaded with goodies from some of the most respected brands in the fly fishing industry.
Friday: On Friday morning, teams are assigned their stunning river locations and the fishing begins! All teams will have access to amazing private stretches on the Gunnison River, East River and Taylor River. While our base camp is the Almont Resort, we are very lucky (and thankful!) that the owners of Three Rivers Resort and Harmel’s Ranch Resort are supporting our event by offering access to their pristine private waters. The fishing here is legendary!
Friday night concludes with dinner and drinks (included), followed by a silent auction and raffle.
Saturday: For your second full day on the river, teams will continue to rotate fishing locations in the morning and afternoon. Saturday night we’ll have an awards ceremony with dinner and drinks (included) as prizes are handed out.
Sunday: Take your time over breakfast, then pack up and head home with great new memories and more than a couple exciting (and true) fish stories!
Almont, Colorado, is where the East River and the Taylor River meet to form the mighty Gunnison! The beauty here is unsurpassed…no wonder it’s one of Colorado’s premier fishing spots!
