Our company philosophy is simple: Introduce people to the amazing sport of fly fishing; provide an enriching experience to new and experienced anglers; promote environmental stewardship of our amazing fisheries; and serve our local communities–especially the underprivileged.

Tailwater Outfitters, LLC is fully licensed (License #3325), bonded, and insured as an outfitter in the state of Colorado. We provide guided fly fishing trips to the South Platte River system and the Arkansas River tailwater at Pueblo.  All of the guides we hire are the best in the area. They know where the fish are and will show you what flies to use and the techniques to catch them. All of our trips are walk and wade, meaning, we’ll throw on some boots and waders and wade into the river to fish the prime spots. We provide all the gear necessary for a day of fishing, which includes: boots, waders, rod and reel, and terminal tackle (flies, indicators, weight, etc.). If you prefer to use your own gear, by all means, use it. If you book a full day with us, we provide lunch. Safety is our number one priority and requires that all of our guides have current first aid certifications from the American Red Cross.

The Tailwater Outfitters’ origin story begins when our founders Anthony and Carlos met up on the river to fly fish one cool summer morning. It was their first time meeting and only days before Carlos had been looking for a guide to teach him and some family members how to get better at catching fish on the fly. Carlos booked with a local fly shop and was told his fly fishing guide would be Anthony. Anthony and Carlos struck a friendship immediately and began hitting the water together almost every weekend over the next year and a half. The pair pushed each other on getting better at learning new fly fishing techniques, refining existing skills, and finding fish. Anthony was guiding full-time for a local shop during the summers and Carlos was passionate about introducing friends and family to this amazing sport. With some encouragement from friends and family and the blessing of Anthony’s fly shop, they took the leap and formed Tailwater Outfitters, LLC. Learn more about our founders below.
