Fly Fishing Steamboat Springs
Yampa River Outfitters was started by local guide Paul Russell in 2003. The mission was to create a guide service using highly experienced personnel that have a passion for helping people catch trophy trout. Paul has been guiding in northwest Colorado for over 20 years on the Yampa and Elk Rivers in the Steamboat Springs area.
John S (Copper John) Barr - "I have fished the Yampa River with Paul for many years, and have had so many unbelievable experiences I cannot remember all of them. Paul is an accomplished fly fisher, and as fine a person and guide as I have fished with . He knows the river intimately and no matter the conditions he has an answer and will put together a plan that will maximize what the river has to offer on that day. I always finish a day on the water with Paul with a smile on my face."
