Cole was born and raised in Woodland Park Colorado before relocating to Durango to attend Fort Lewis College. He got his first trout fishing education, growing up on a farm with trout ponds and surrounded by rivers.

Cole graduated from Fort Lewis with a Tourism Resort Management degree and spent some years working in the hospitality and resort industry before taking a position with the San Juan Angler assisting in the management of the shop as well as guiding.

He loves to spend his days off exploring the back country high mountain streams in the area as well as dredging the deep sections of the animas for the big ones.
