Meet The Team

Fishing and Wake Sports in Windsor, CO

Tyler Lind | Head of Operations

Tyler Lind has sat front row in watching the Windsor community grow. The oldest son of Martin and Viki Lind, the founders and developers of the Water Valley and RainDance master-planned communities, has not only witnessed but assisted in the growth of the area. "I've watched my dad create a place unlike any other where you could enjoy a beach lifestyle while living in Northern Colorado," he said.

After 15 years of guiding hunting and fishing excursions, last year Tyler decided to move his wife and four boys back to Windsor and continue to assist with the family business. He's now using his passion for the outdoors to manage The Marina at Water Valley which offers a wide range of watersports activities like wakeboarding, guided fishing and much more.

"The Marina at Water Valley is the premiere fishing and watersports location in all of Northern Colorado," said Tyler. "We offer something for everybody, and it's been a blast helping build this part of our company's business."

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.

Shyann Bathauer joined The Marina at Water Valley as its Administrative Assistant in early 2023. A native of Southern Idaho, Shyann has lived in Windsor since 2011 and "is excited to be part of The Water Valley Company and all that it has to offer."
