Risers 4 Rett is a bi-annual Fly Fishing Tournament to benefit the Rocky Mountain Rett Association. The Tournament helps sustain the Rett Clinic at Children’s Hospital Colorado, which supports families dealing with this terrible disease. For more information on Rett Syndrome, please visit www.RMRETT.org.
THE EVENT IS SOLD OUT. PLEASE CLICK ON THE "REGISTRATION WAITLIST" AND WE'LL KEEP YOU INFORMED IF SPOTS OPEN UP OR WHEN OUR FALL 2019 EVENT REGISTRATION IS OPEN.
The event encompasses three amazing days of fishing, eating, socializing and relaxing.
Thursday: All teams check in Thursday afternoon at the Almont Resort in Almont, Colorado. Settle into your riverside lodging (included in your event fee) before joining us for cocktails and dinner (also included), starting at 6:30 p.m. in the event building of the Resort. You can cast a few lines that evening right at the resort while meeting the other participants. As a bonus, you will also receive a welcome packet and gift bag loaded with goodies from some of the most respected brands in the fly fishing industry.
Friday: On Friday morning, teams are assigned their
stunning river locations and the fishing begins! All teams will have
access to amazing private stretches on the Gunnison River, East River
and Taylor River. While our base camp is the Almont Resort, we are very
lucky (and thankful!) that the owners of Three Rivers Resort and
Harmel’s Ranch Resort are supporting our event by offering access to
their pristine private waters. The fishing here is legendary! Friday night concludes with dinner and drinks (included), followed by a silent auction and raffle.
Saturday: For your second full day on the river, teams will continue to rotate fishing locations in the morning and afternoon. Saturday night we’ll have an awards ceremony with dinner and drinks (included) as prizes are handed out.
Sunday: Take your time over breakfast, then pack up
and head home with great new memories and more than a couple exciting
(and true) fish stories!
Almont, Colorado, is where the East River and the Taylor River meet to form the mighty Gunnison! The beauty here is unsurpassed…no wonder it’s one of Colorado’s premier fishing spots!
Located just outside Gunnison, Colorado, at the beautiful Almont Resort, our event is one to remember—fundraising has never been so beautiful and relaxing. Thanks to our supporters at Three Rivers Resort and Harmel’s Ranch Resort, we have access to top notch guides and breathtaking views on trout-rich waters!
We will accept up to 24 two-person fly-fishing teams. Choose a friend to join you for some fun, healthy competition for a great cause. Don’t have a teammate yet? Individual participants are always welcome—we’ll pair you up at the event.*

New to Fishing?
Risers4Rett's primary purpose is to raise funds for the Rett Clinic at Children's Hospital-Colorado. A close second priority is to raise awareness and educate people about Rett Syndrome in general. At our two charity fly fishing events we do both, and hopefully do them well.
To ensure success at our events we make sure everyone is properly prepared and comfortable with the "fishing" aspects of the weekend. Many participants are experienced fisherman, some are not. For those new to fly fishing and our events, we provide ample opportunity for all levels to understand fly fishing and have fun doing it!
At each event we provide group and individual instruction on fly fishing techniques, proper catch and release fish handling and habitat preservation. When signing up for one of our events please indicate if you would like individual lessons or to be part of a group class that will cover these topics and more. The guides and instructors at our events look forward to teaching you the skills needed to catch fish and maintain the wonderful habitat we fish in.
