Colton Donovan

Raised in Sun Valley, Colton Donovan has consistently been able to nurture and develop his love of fly fishing. Colton’s favorite place to fish is the Upper and Lower Lost River. This is a special place for Colton because it is where he learned to fly fish and where he was able to find his passion alongside his father -- whom he continues to share the experience with. Growing up, the two would make their weekly stops into Silver Creek Outfitters for flies, to chat with guides about river conditions, and to see their friends in the shop. Colton states how he knew, “someday I wanted to work at Silver Creek Outfitters, not only to pursue my passion for fly fishing but also to work in a retail environment. I love people and SCO was a place where I could talk to people about my passion”. Colton believes it is Silver Creek Outfitters mission not only to serve the customer but to create lifelong relationships with individuals both in the store and on the river and he is proud to be a part of this community.
