Trip Details

Arkansas River fly fishing for Brown and Rainbow trout in Colorado is an unparalleled experience that many only dream about. Rather than standing on the riverbank, you'll be drifting down the river by raft, providing you with access to prime fishing spots that are impossible to reach by foot.

With predominantly 10" to 16" Browns, Arkansas River fly fishing offers some of the fastest dry fly action in the West, with feeding and holding zones that are only accessible by raft. Our float fishing trips provide an unparalleled view of the Arkansas River, with no crowds, breathtaking sunsets, and plenty of wildlife to observe.

Only flies or lures are allowed – no bait! Anglers should be proficient in casting skills to ensure a rewarding experience. Novices should consider our instructional fly fishing course prior to Arkansas River float fishing.

Location: Arkansas River with departure at Cotopaxi location

Requirements: Minimum age requirement 12+
