There are over 9,000 miles of trout streams in Colorado. Out of this total only 167.8 miles are currently designated as Gold Medal streams. Of these, few are as illustrious as the Roaring Fork River. This fast paced, rocky freestone beauty originates in the high peaks of Independence Pass. Fishable from a boat nearly year-round, anglers can expect to tangle with rainbows, cuttbows, browns and pure cutthroats.
This river is a local favorite, spawning some of the biggest and baddest trout around. Usually only floatable for 6-8 weeks beginning in June, the Eagle River is full of rowdy rapids and aggressive feeding frenzies. The river offers superb dry fly action with major hatches of BWO’s, Caddis, PMD’s, Golden Stones and Green Drakes.
Floatable 365 days a year, the mighty Colorado is characterized by long runs and gentle riffles that afford anglers the chance to hook into large Rainbows and Browns. The most remote of all, the Colorado flows through large open spaces filled with private historic ranches of the old west, providing the angler a real escape from development and crowds.
