Much of our annual business comes from repeat customers. Visit us and find out for yourself how Rainbow Trout Outfitters sets the standard when it comes to truly unforgettable outdoor adventures here in the beautiful and rugged state of Colorado.


Meet The Team

David and Jane, Linda and Doug have been in the dude ranching and hospitality business for nearly thirty years. Their down to earth dispositions draw in all who meet them. Customer service is their main priority and they work hard to keep guests coming back year after year. In addition to Rainbow Trout Outfitters, they own and operate Rainbow Trout Ranch, a first class dude ranching experience, that is perfect for the guests who prefer more inclusive accommodations than the tent camping that RTO offers.
