Fish: Upper CO River Float (full)
We’ll drop in at one of the upriver campsites and ride the river downwards through the rushing canyon waters and calmer waters around the plains as we search for trout hidden between the boulders and tides.
The Upper Colorado is one of the West’s most legendary fly-fishing rivers. The landscape of open plains and red rock canyons makes for some of Colorado’s most secretive scenery, and the plentiful fishing is as exhilarating as the terrain. We’ll drop in at one of the upriver campsites and ride the river downwards through the rushing canyon waters and calmer waters around the plains as we search for trout hidden between the boulders and tides. We’ll also have the opportunity to wade onto rocky islands in the middle of the river and fish by wading. This is a great way to see a little known part of Colorado that is still undiscovered in the guidebook.
Price: $550 per person; each additional person is $150
Note: Float trips are based on 2 people per boat maximum.
A gear list will be sent upon confirmation of course registration, and we’re happy to help arrange for personal gear if you do not have it.
