Southern Roots Outfitters has a small guide staff of seasoned professional anglers. Our guides are knowledgeable about the waters that they fish along the Colorado River. It is their home, and they are in a boat approximately 200 days a year! In preparation for each day, our guides are at home tying flies, looking at weather and river conditions, and calculating the best game plan to put you on those big fish! While we can never guarantee a trophy trout, as it is your job to get it in the net, we make sure you have the best equipment and strategy to set you up for success.
We are notably different than other guide services. We are not corporate-run; rather our team is a family of anglers that are career fishermen. We are dedicated to getting our clients on the water when the fishing is at its best. Each trip is custom-built. We call our clients the night before each excursion to create a plan for what we think will offer the best day on the water.
We book each trip personally. Clients work directly with a guide from their first booking call to the final pick-up ride at the end of the trip. If you call our office and cannot get your guide on the phone, it is because we are on the water. The best way to reach us is through email or text. Our guides work directly with our clients to ensure the best communication.
Young and old, experienced and beginners are all welcome.
Our guides are ready to cater to all angler types. We are experienced and patient. That means if you have never fly fished before, we are here to help! If you are a seasoned angler looking for an expert to show you our rivers, we are here for you. Young or old, we are ready to show you the river through our eyes. All you need to do is show up, and we will take care of the rest!
