Randy Ford

Owner, Operator of Alpine Fishing Adventures, one of our fishing guides, is a fourth generation Colorado native found out a a very young age he was fascinated with fishing. Even though Randy’s parents were not fisherman and the first choice for something fun to do was not to go fishing, they would always accommodate Randy’s enthusiasm for fishing. Randy’s parents tell stories of how once he got started fishing it was like pulling teeth to get him to leave his fishing hole. At age 12 Randy began fishing with his grandpa and together they explored dozens of Colorado’s fishing hot spots. At that time Randy found he had a special place in his heart for Lake Dillon. He was enamored with its beautiful setting and awesome brown trout fishing.

Upon graduating from high school Randy attended Western State College in Gunnison Colorado. Why did Randy pick Western Sate? Gunnison Colorado is a fishing paradise! Randy soon got a job at the local fishing store and began learning more and more about all facets of fishing. He became very familiar with Ice Fishing, Lake Fishing from a boat, and fly fishing. Once Randy graduated from College he stuck around Gunnison and began guiding walk wade fly fishing trips. He soon ran into challenges making a full income guiding, so he pursued a better income producing career and eventually started a steel construction business and later moved to Silverthorne where aside from Gunnison, he truly feels at home.

After 15 long years in steel construction Randy began to yearn for what really made him happy, and that was being on the water, sharing with others what he loves. That’s when in In 2014 Randy decided to apply what he learned in college and began Alpine Fishing Adventures. This has been a dream come true for Randy, sharing and teaching his passion to young people, beginners, and those who also just love to fish. Randy loves people and puts everything hes got into each and every outing.

Randy would love the chance to give it his all and help you catch some fish!
