When Cathy Greenwald learned to fly fish it was not something most girls or women were doing. She grew up in Buena Vista, Colorado where her father taught her to fly fish a variety of different streams, rivers and lakes. She began teaching beginning fly fishing classes for a couple of the local fly fishing shops in the Denver area about eight years ago. She started guiding six years ago. Cathy is an experienced professional teacher in Colorado with excellent communication skills. She not only guides for TroutTrips but she also instructs fly fishing classes. Her casting and dry fly techniques are the best in this region. Her philosophy as a guide is that the angler should have a good time and learn something that he/she didn't know before booking the trip.

Jason Maxwell, also a native of Colorado, has been fishing since he was 4 years old. He has a special liking to fishing rivers in Colorado and spends well over a 100 days fishing. He is a very creative fly tier with some unique fly patterns that trout love to feast on. He is excited and enthusiastic to teach and guide and share some of his secrets.

Matt Gray is one of the newest additions to the Trout Trips guide team. Matt was born and raised in Colorado and has an intimate knowledge of its rivers, streams, and lakes. He caught his first fish just outside of Gypsum on the Eagle River, and it has been non-stop ever since. After graduating from the University of Northern Colorado, Matt ventured south to Denver and started working for Brookside Flies, a major fly manufacturer. Playing with flies all day has given Matt a unique understanding of fly selection and entomology. This, coupled with years of fly-fishing Western waters, and an unquenchable thirst for large trout, makes Matt one of the most energetic and enthusiastic guides on the water. Matt has a strong desire to see his clients succeed on the river, and will do whatever it takes to make his trips successful ones.
