A Day with Maddie: Our Favorite Angler

Colorado fly fishing guide Maddie Brenneman and her beau Nick Kelley were our special guests last weekend at The Nell. We welcomed the renowned fly fishing pros for a glorious day of catch + release adventures on the Roaring Fork River.

In the morning, guides from our Adventure Center showed them streams at the top of Independence Pass where they stalked wild brook trout. In the afternoon, they floated the Lower Fork in our drift boat as the sun set over Mount Sopris.

The catch of the day: when Nick swiftly reeled in a rainbow trout during dinner on the riverbank. See below for photos from Maddie’s takeover of The Little Nell’s Instagram and join us through September for your own fishing adventures!
