Our guides

Our conservation-forward family of trout fishing guides strive to provide each client with the best trout fishing trip on the Little Red River.


Beau saunders, Owner

Beau began fishing the Little Red River as a young man, more than 25 years ago. His passion as a fisherman and a conservationist started at his grandfather's home on the banks of the Rio Grande just outside of Creede, Colorado. Beau now owns the historic Lobo Landing marina and lives his dream as a professional fishing guide on some of the greatest waters on the Little Red River. On this river, Beau is known as a spin fisherman, which means he specializes in artificial bait.
