Wildwood Outfitters Blog and Fishing Report
For fly fishers pursuing trout in the backcountry, Colorado is at or near the top of everyone's list. To Katie, it is the perfect place to lead trips into Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) in search of gorgeous trout. She has taken folks into the wilds of RMNP for the last four summers, and that experience has made her both passionate and knowledgeable on fishing for trout in the backcountry.
" Fishing takes me back to my deepest roots, and is something that has always felt ingrained in me."
Long before Katie was leading backpacking trips in Colorado national parks, she was fishing Pennsylvania rivers. Smallmouth bass, her favorite fish, speak to her angling youth and after a few days getting skunked each catch was exciting! "They're just so much fun to catch, and also have that nostalgic value that never gets old." It's this foundation, and the subsequent experiences gained as a guide in CO, that led her to launch the website and blog Fish Untamed in April of 2018.
