Fishing Opportunities

There are several opportunities for members to take advantage of the many fish species and places to fish in Colorado. SHFC organizes several fishing events during the year which target walleye, smallmouth bass, and lake trout. Other species may be targeted but there needs to be enough interest to put a trip together.


Rapala Account

Similar to other purchasing accounts SHFC has a VIP account with Rapala and associated brands.

(Suffix line, Storm lures, VMC, Luhr Jensen, Marcum, Strike Master, etc.) and tackle can be purchased at a significant discount. Unfortunately, they do not offer rods and reels but just about any tackle you may want can be purchased.

We put in 3-4 orders a year so contact us if you need anything.


Open Water

Location: Chatfield Reservior

Cost: Crestline boat rental fee split amongst the fisherman

When Chatfield Reservoir opens up in the spring there will typically be
trips to target walleye by trolling late into the night. These are the coldest trips of the
year so it takes preparation and possibly a temporary loss of your senses! This is the best time of the year to catch a trophy walleye and possibly some keepers.

Once the water warms, typically in April, we start fishing earlier and start catching greater numbers. The smallmouth bass fishing typically starts to pick up as well. These trips will go until mid-late June and will pick back up in the fall when the fish become more active with the cooling water.

These trips are held either after work on the Thursday before an on off-Friday.

Ice Fishing

Location: Granby, Williams Fork Reservoir, Chatfield Reservior

Cost: Varies by year to support our guides. Please reach out for information

The annual Granby ice fishing trip has been a club favorite for years!

This trip is typically held in mid-March and is a two-day adventure for everyone. The first day we hire guides and fish for lake trout on either Lake Granby or Williams Fork Reservoir. This trip does have a cost to support our great guides. The second day is free with yourSHFC fishing leaders providing the guiding services for free. You get what you pay for!

SHFC has plenty of fishing gear for those who need it. You can fish one or both days.

If the ice is safe there will be trips to Chatfield Reservoir after work or on off-Fridays.The walleye bite doesn’t last long so this is a quick trip that ends once it’s completely dark. This is a good way to learn how to ice fish and possibly catch a walleye or two. Trout are often caught as well.

SHFC has assorted ice fishing gear that may be checked out for free. Equipment includes augers, pop-up shelters, small propane heaters, and sonar units.
