My 10 year-old son and I had a great morning ice fishing with Justin on Steamboat Lake! Justin a very attentive guide, answering all the questions from my kiddo and making it super easy to catch trout all morning -- 16 before noon! We will definitely be back!

Straight line was a great experience to hire our snow boards, the staff were very professional and knowledgeable with all the up to date and new gear, they gave great advise, I changed my snowboard after one week for a pair of skis, with no hassle at all, and was welcomed back and remembered, which is lovely as they are...

I did a fly fishing trip last year with Steve and had an absolutely awesome experience. I tried to set up a last minute trip with him but he was booked. Justin was working at store and mentioned ice fishing. I was interested in trying that with my son and he accommodated us for the following day. I would highly... More

Beautiful store and easy to navigate through. HUGE selection. We are the kind of people to drop some big money while shopping out of town, especially around the holiday season. A young gentleman assisted us while looking at some reels and rods and was all around so pompous we had to leave and spend money elsewhere to avoid giving that... More

I did not use this shop directly but had an incredible experience with Duncan, the guide, who is affiliated with them. I was fishing downtown on my own and not having much luck. There was another fisherman upstream from me who was just pulling in fish after fish. He took pity on my and invited to use his rod and... More

We did a fly fishing trip with three groups in two locations in July 2016. For the Yampa River group, Ben and Rich were great guides. All four of the fishermen were new to fly fishing, and they were super patient and helpful. We all learned a lot and had a great day on the river. If in Steamboat again,... More

Great store with tons of items to choose from. We bought a few things and certainly could have spent more. I was worried that they would only have fishing gear and that is not the case. Something for everyone.

My 16 year old daughter and I went to check out downtown Steamboat during the sidewalk sale weekend. Happened into Straightline while looking at a Patagonia pullover and ended up with snowboots and watershoes too. The staff made me a deal better than the sidewalk pricing.

After years of unsatisfactory online purchases, I went to Straightline for hiking shoes. The saleswoman spent about an hour with me, and I must have tried 8 pair of shoes.
