Meet Our Guides
Johnny was born and raised in Steamboat Springs and was a successful Nordic Combined skier competing in the 1998, 2002, 2006 and 2010 Olympic Games. In 2010, Johnny won 3 Silver medals in the Vancouver Olympics. Johnny has been a fly fisherman his whole life and has been guiding since 2001. In 2013, Johnny purchased Steamboat Flyfisher and is currently the owner with Rob Burden. “Our goal is to provide our customers with the best experience possible on the water. In the retail store, we sell equipment that we use ourselves and we cater to both the beginner and experienced angler alike. On our guided trips, we make sure that all of our guides are both experienced and personable. Give us a call and we will do our best to provide you with a fishing experience you will never forget.”
Rob Burden has been guiding for Steamboat Flyfisher since 2007, when he moved to Steamboat Springs. Growing up in Northwest Pennsylvania, Rob has been an avid angler from a young age and his experience and knowledge are far beyond his years. Rob is a co-owner of Steamboat Flyfisher and spends almost every day on the water either guiding or fishing on his own. When Rob is not in Steamboat Springs you can find him guiding for redfish in Louisiana.
Hailing from just outside of Detroit, Keith made the move to Steamboat in the 80’s in pursuit of powder. However, he soon learned that the summers provided more activities and quickly picked up fly fishing. Keith has been guiding fly fishing trips for over 15 years now and is the most highly requested guide. Great with beginners, great with advanced anglers, Keith’s goal on the river is to teach and have fun. With endorsements from Winston Rods and Scientific Anglers, Keith is an icon in the fishing industry.
Westley Fout, originally from Illinois, moved west when he was a young boy. He grew up on the Colorado River near Glenwood Springs. It was there that his great grand father first took him fishing and it has been his passion ever since. After fishing all over the Roaring Fork Valley, the watershed of the Colorado, Frying Pan, Crystal, Roaring Fork and countless high mountain lakes and streams, Wes moved to Steamboat Springs in 2004. In search of big trout and fresh powder, he found both and has been home ever since. Wes loves teaching and sharing his vast knowledge of Routt County’s world class waters. First time fishers, kids and even the experienced angler will enjoy his patience, knowledge, enthusiasm, and sense of humor. Wes is always up for adventure, if he isn’t guiding or skiing he can be found summer or winter somewhere in Routt County knee deep in water with a fly rod in his hand and a smile on his face.
Andy has been fly fishing for about 20 years now since he first started out in his home state of WI where he chased trout, salmon, and steelhead on spring creeks, freestone rivers and tributaries of Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. He has now spent the last 12 years in Steamboat fishing one of his favorite rivers, the Yampa. Andy is a very patient and informative guide. He is eager to teach every angler ability from novice to expert and enjoys spending the day on the river helping people catch fish.
