About

This has become a very popular summertime trip for those who like to walk/wade fish and float fish as well. We start each day with a morning wade trip beginning at Arkansas River Tours in Cotopaxi at 7:30 AM with a guide from Royal Gorge Anglers fly shop. This portion of the trip lets you shake loose the cobwebs and concentrate on the great early morning dry fly fishing. At noon, you are free to spend a few hours on your own relaxing during the heat of the afternoon or pursuing Browns rising to hoppers along shorelines. Meet us at 4:30 back at Arkansas River Tours in Cotopaxi for an evening float using large dries and streamers. The best of both worlds ! You’ll need to provide your own flies and lunch. Mid June through August.

3 Day Gunnison Gorge Fly Fishing Trip

3 Beautiful Day Package! | Class III+

Rates

  • Boat (2 People Max) – $2800

Duration

3 Days

About

The Gunnison Gorge, below the Black Canyon National Park in western Colorado, is a 14 mile wilderness journey combining spectacular scenery with one of Colorado’s finest Gold Medal fisheries. A mile hike down the Chuckar Trail brings us to the river and the narrow canyon carved through the polished Protereozoic schist and gneiss formations. Mild rapids punctuate the crystal clear pools on the first day as we enter this secluded retreat. The Gunnison Gorge is arguably the most beautiful 3-day float fishing trip in the West. The Gunnison River is world famous for its prolific German Brown and Rainbow trout population with more fish per mile than any other Colorado river. The latest counts show 7,000 fish per mile! Float fishing is the only way to access several prime holding areas in the canyon.

Our fishing trips are 3 days to allow plenty of time to walk-wade early in the morning and into the evening from camp after a day of fishing from our rafts at a leisurely pace. We stop to allow anglers to fish secluded water as we slowly make our way to a different camp each night. We select isolated camps for each night we are on the river where our guides prepare wholesome meals from fresh ingredients including our own Dutch oven recipe delights. Our evenings are filled with conversations of the day’s events, quiet relaxation time or more fishing with the evening hatch. The Gunnison Gorge is punctuated with Class III rapids which add to the excitement of the trip.
