Jeff Colwell | Marina Manager | The Marina at Water Valley

When The Marina at Water Valley was in search of an experienced manager to operate its guided fishing and outdoor water sports activities, they looked no further than Jeff Colwell.

"I love the building and enhancing of top-notch fisheries and look forward to the future years here at The Marina at Water Valley, which is a Colorado paradise," he said.

A native of Loveland, Jeff has guided hunters and fishermen for over 30 years and operates his own Windsor-based waterfowl hunting business - Front Range Guide Service - in the fall and winter months. He also has experience as a fishing manager at Sportsman's Warehouse in Loveland and is on the pro staff for Scheels while competing in bass tournaments on the local and professional levels across the nation. He's achieved numerous high and first place finishes on the local level, T.B.F., Colorado B.A.S.S. and the MLF.

Jeff has a passion for Christ, family, the outdoors, hunting, and fishing and "is thrilled to get the opportunity to utilize all of these in my job."

Jeff also mentioned he would enjoy the opportunity to meet and guide both experienced and novice anglers at The Marina at Water Valley in not only fishing, but in the many water sports opportunities the venue offers.

Jeff lives in Windsor with his wife Debbie and has two older sons, Colton, and Logan, who both share his passion for the outdoors.
