Staff

Black Canyon Anglers maintains the most experienced guide staff on the Gunnison. We set high standards for our staff and they work hard to create the best trips possible. We invite you to join us on a river experience you will not soon forget.

 

“It takes a special person to row you down the river safely; cook breakfast, lunch and dinner; set up a different camp each night; and retain the geology, wildlife, plant, and fishing knowledge required of this trip.”

Adam learned to fly fish the rivers of north central Idaho and western Montana. ”The Gunnison is as incredible a river as any in the western U.S.: from its unique geology to the mind-boggling salmon fly hatch or just simply diving in its cool green waters, all of it is beautiful.” Adam lives near Hotchkiss with his wife Anna.

Jake is a Western Pennsylvania native, he started guiding the upper Gunnison River out of Almont as a fly fishing and whitewater guide when he was 20. He spends his free time studying stream entomology and fishing every reach of the Gunnison River from top to bottom. His addiction to fly fishing is obvious, he has a brain that seems to work more like a trout’s brain and less like a human brain. Jakes goal is to ensure that everyone walks away with a positive experience and a thirst to come back and catch “the one that got away”.

Hayden came to Colorado via Texas. He came here to pursue his dreams of being a fly fishing guide and river bum. However along the way he is now guiding elk during the fall and early winter months. Hayden is professional, hard working and very fun to be around. Like all of the BCA guides, he is “fishy”, a highly proficient oarsman and a top notch guide.

I have been a full time fly fishing guide in Colorado since 2002. I have been with BCA since 2008 and I love sharing, teaching and learning anything and everything about fly fishing and the gorge. New Castle Colorado is where I call home with my wife Hilary, daughter Hadley and labs Baetis and Hatch. We are lucky enough to live on the Colorado river which is where I’m usually working when not down in the gorge.

Fishing experience from the Pacific to the Atlantic, as well as Belize. Appeared on the Gruene episode of the Emmy award winning Bronco Roads tv show.

I’m a full time fishing guide and owner of Action Angler & Outdoor Center on the Guadalupe River, Texas. My fly shop opened in May of 2002. I have over 30 years of fly fishing experience, which started on stock ponds in north east Texas. My guide schedule consists of trout fishing in the winter in Texas, and summer in Colorado. I target the Texas bass in the fall and spring.
I caught my first trout on the fly in Colorado at age 12 while hiking the headwaters of the Rio Grande. I continue to fish and guide in Colorado through the summers, and have fishing experience in numerous waters stretching from California to Maine and all the way down to Key West. My only experience out of the country is Belize. I’m always looking to share my experience with other anglers looking to fish the hill country, and learn from other anglers as well.
