Our Waters

We Love Our Waters!!

Here at SAGE, we are passionate about our home waters in the Vail Valley. This area is home to some of Colorado’s most productive alpine fisheries and we are committed to keeping them healthy. We follow strict catch and release practices and do everything possible to avoid the spread of invasive aquatic species We love our our home rivers and know you will too!

Eagle River Private FishingTX

We have the unique privilege of fishing nearly a mile stretch of private land along the Eagle River, just 15 minutes from Vail and Beaver Creek. Our exclusive access means unpressured water, solitude, and healthy numbers of brown, rainbow and cutthroat trout.

Colorado RiverTX

This iconic river offers great fishing amid a dramatic canyon landscape. Float trips are the ideal way to experience this part of the Colorado River. Whether you’re throwing streamers to the banks, nymphing deep runs and riffles or delicately presenting dry flies to subtle risers, this river has it all. Rainbow, Brown and Cutthroat Trout average 8-16 inches in size but fish in the 20+ inch range aren’t uncommon.

Piney River Private FishingTX

The Piney River offers some of the very best backcountry fishing in the state, and Sage guests get to enjoy the only private access. The Piney Valley Ranch is a 30,000-acre hideaway near Vail. The Piney River runs right through the ranch, offering seven miles of pristine, private water. Sage has exclusive access to this incredible fishery. Our anglers enjoy access with side-by-side ATV’s, as the river channel follows a rugged and remote canyon through the ranch. We only offer full-day trips to the Piney River due to its remote location. But once you’re there, you may never want to leave.
