About Guide School

Guide school will take place over two extended weekends. March 8-10 based out of Glenwood Springs and then again March 15-17 hopefully on the Upper Colorado. We will be starting at 7:30 a.m. each day. The course will be a total of 50 hours plus guiding real clients on the last day. Each day you will need to provide your own lunch, snack, drinks etc… Dress appropriately for the weather and of course bring your fly fishing gear for when you are not on the sticks. We will provide a work book, the state required log sheets to be completed after each day. After the completion of the school you will need to have a current First Aid and CPR certificate in order to guide for an outfitter.
