Denver Trout Fishing Guide Curt Schaumburg

Born and raised in Colorado, Curt Schaumburg has been chasing trout here all his life. He has been guiding Colorado waters full time for the past 12yrs. and has spent the last 6 summers in Alaska guiding for monster Rainbows and Salmon at a fly out lodge located in the Bristol Bay. When not on the water guiding he can be found teaching fly tying classes, Stream entomology, casting clinics(certified casting instructor), and most importantly….raising his baby daughter to love and respect nature as much as he does…well, that and to one day row him down the river!
Curt is a very knowledgeable, patient and humble guide who works really well with teaching kids the joy of fly fishing and has worked closely with programs like Wounded Warriors teaching vets and people with handicaps to catch fish on a fly rod.
You can see and read more about Curt and his guiding adventures on Instagram or Facebook under “The Bearded Fly”.

On Fly Rods: “I prefer light and fast-action rods.  With so many great rods out right now, it’s hard to go wrong.  But if pressed, I prefer Scott and Sage.”

On Reels: “Mostly Nautilus.  Solid and well thought out, beautiful too.”

On Flies: “95% of the time, I fish my own creations.  They are classified so I can’t go into them here. Spend a day with me to get a peek! ”

Favorite Water: The South Platte drainage, especially some of the private ranches on the North Fork, they are simply amazing!

I've been lucky enough to fish with some great guides all over the world. Danny is about the fishiest guy I've ever met. He will work his tail off to get his clients into fish. Highly recommend getting a day on the water with him.

Danny took me on my first ever fly fishing adventure. He was so patient with me and took the time to explain everything, every step of the way. Danny made sure my trip was successful; he helped me catch multiple fish! I had the best time! I was fortunate enough to go back for a second trip. Danny took me someplace different and made sure my second trip was just as exciting as my first. Incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and such a fun guy. Highly recommend

I went on my first flying trip ever with Danny Frank. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the river as well as the fish who lived in it. With his help my dad and I were hooking and netting fish within half an hour of being on the river. I cannot wait to book my next trip with him!

I have booked several trips with Colorado Trout Hunters and just want to say these guys are great! The guides are all really patient and are a lot of fun to fish with. If you want to catch fish, book a trip with Colorado Trout Hunters!

Definitely book with these guys! I went today with Fred and he was very friendly and knew exactly where to find the monster trout we were targeting. We met many people throughout the day that had caught nothing at all, while I personally landed 8 fish 18+ inches in length, include one massive 22in brown trout!! For an experienced angler like myself Fred was great, offering helpful tips along the way and sighting the "big boys" for me to cast to. An epic day I will never forget. Thanks guys!!

I have been out on the river multiple times with Colorado Trout Hunters. Every one of their guides that I have fished with has been excellent. They are down to earth, helpful and will work extremely hard to put you in the right position to catch fish and have an awesome day. They take time to work with each individual based on their skill level and ensure that fun is had by all. If you are looking for a guide to give you a great day on the water, look no further than these won't be disappointed

I looked everywhere before deciding on a guide to take me out fishing around the Denver area. I've had a few bad experiences in the past with various guides but let me say this, best experience I have EVER had with a guide. Super professional, everything rigged up and ready and these people know what they are doing. There is no down time and if you are a serious fisher or even an every once in a while one this is the place to be. 100% attention to you and a great personality make a perfect day.
