Conor Uris Fishing Guide for Elk Mountain Expeditions

Conor Uris

Fishing Guide/Co-Owner

Guide Since: 2013

Conor, another born and raised Aspen local, grew up fishing the beautiful waters of the Roaring Fork Valley. As soon as he graduated from Aspen High, he took off to travel the world. After a few years of adventuring abroad, Conor returned to Colorado to study biology at Fort Lewis College and learned to guide whitewater from his childhood friends, James and Lange. After 5 years of mastering the art of rowing rapids, Conor decided to combine his passion for rowing boats and fly-fishing. When he’s not behind the oars or casting to trout you’ll probably find him streamside with a textbook and a bug net nerding out on aquatic insects. During the off season, Conor’s sense of adventure leads to all sorts of crazy places from running rapids in the Grand Canyon to chasing down a new species of fish in Mexico.
