Jonathan Messinger

Denver, Colorado

A Colorado native, Jonathan grew up fishing all over the state, cutting his teeth on rivers like the South Platte, Yampa, San Juan and various alpine ponds and lakes. After several years of sharpening his fishing skills in Bozeman, Montana, Jonathan returned back to his home waters in Colorado. On any given day you are likely to see him fishing or guiding on the South Platte, exploring the Eagle River or chasing trophy trout on the Dream Stream and many others. As part of the Douglas fly fishing pro team, Jonathan has been hard at work both on and off the water every chance he gets. Jonathan’s positivity and love of fishing is infectious and it is his mission to share the passion with other anglers and anyone who is interested in the sport. “I love seeing smiles, good energy, and lasting memories that the river gives us. I want to share those qualities with anyone and everyone!”
