Float Fishing

Evening fly fishing near Colorado Springs is our most popular fishing trip! We launch late afternoon, time depends on water levels and time of the year. Enjoy Arkansas River fly fishing with our special after-hours permit so you won’t be fishing when everyone else is rafting. These trips are the best fly fishing float trips in Colorado!!! This is a magical time of the day in the canyon and you will get to experience what our guides call the POWER HOUR! This is when the shadows are just right on the banks and the fish jump to eat your dry fly!
The Arkansas River near Colorado Springs provides Gold Medal fly fishing for Brown and Rainbow trout. Your fly fishing trip will be unique – you’ll be floating the river by raft! You will experience some of the fastest dry fly action in the West for predominantly 10″ to 16″ Browns. We begin in March/April with our famous Caddis fly hatch and continue into the fall, fishing with attractor and terrestrial patterns. We take you to feeding and holding zones accessible only by raft as we drift through private and public lands. We drift within casting distance of trout other anglers only dream about! Our float fishing trips show you a side of the Arkansas few experiences – no crowds, beautiful sunsets, wildlife and fishing where walk/wade anglers can’t reach due to private land, difficult hikes or swift currents. We promote catch and release with single barbless hooks. 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 float fishing.

My son and I booked the evening fishing float. The views were great but the fishing was spectacular. The guide was very helpful since it was my son's first time fly fishing. Great trip!

The Gunnison Gorge was a dream come true!

Some college buddies and I went on the 3 day Gunnison Gorge fishing trip with this company and it was a dream come true. The fishing was phenomenal, the food was great, and the staff was a ton of fun.

Learned to fish!

I wanted to learn how to fly fish this summer so I brought my friend on the fishing wade trip. We caught fish and it was a blast! Can't wait to go again!
