Colorado Llama Packing

Fish remote locations in RMNP with the help of Llamas

Have you wanted to fish the high alpine lakes and secret creeks of Rocky Mountain National Park?  Does carrying a heavy pack full of supplies sound too strenuous for you?  Well, we have the perfect solution, let the llamas carry the load!  Enjoy hiking deep into the secluded backcountry of RMNP for days at a time carrying only your day pack.  Catch plenty of colorful cutthroat trout in remote corners of the park.  Close each day with gourmet backcountry dinners.  And don’t work too hard carrying any of the supplies!  Fall is the perfect time to be in the park.  The aspen trees will be turning amazing shades of yellow, red, and orange, and the trout will be trying to fatten up before winter.  Your guide will set up camp, prepare all meals, and provide fly fishing guidance, so you can focus on having the time of your life!  We can even arrange for you to float fish the Colorado River at the end of your trip.  Contact us at to start planning the backcountry fly fishing trip of a lifetime.

In order to get the most out of your trip, we recommend that you book your llama packing trip with LFFE prior to March 1st.  RMNP holds their backcountry campsite lottery on March 1st, and if your trip is on the books by then, we can secure the absolute best locations for fishing in the park.  If you cannot do this, do not worry.  Our intimate knowledge of fishing within the park will ensure that your trip will be a success no matter when you book your trip.

We will send you a detailed packing list so you will know exactly what clothing, toiletries, and personal items you will need for your trip.  Group gear like tents, stoves, etc… are all provided by LFFE at no cost.  Feel free to bring your own personal fishing and camping gear, but if you need, personal gear such as sleeping bags and backpacks, and all necessary fly fishing gear are all available to rent from LFFE.

Do I need to have fly fishing experience? 

No experience necessary. No matter your skill level, your guides will work with you to make you a skilled fly fisherman or woman.

Do I need my own fishing equipment?

You are responsible for your own fly rod, reel, line, and a few other personal fishing items. Please contact us for a full packing list. Don’t have your own? Not a problem. We have top quality Orvis rods and reels available at no extra cost.

What other equipment will I need?

Why Llamas?

  • Llamas can carry up to 80 lbs of gear.
  • Llamas are incredibly low maintenance and require minimal supervision
  • They are naturally adapted to mountainous terrain and have extremely low impact within that environment.
  • Their low-key disposition makes them safe and easy to handle.
  • Their gait is evenly matched to that of the average hiker and their quiet demeanor is an asset both on the trail and in camp.
