Arkansas River

Full Day

Float Fishing

Spend a full day, with lunch riverside, working the busy pocket water and casting until your arm falls off! Enjoy the excitement of the rapids and gold medal fly fishing on the Arkansas River in Colorado!
Fly Fishing the Arkansas River in Colorado provides ample opportunity to catch 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.

Trip Reviews

Educated us on becoming better fisherman!

★★★★★
Cody did an excellent job taking us down the Arkansas River late in the season during low flows. Cody made sure that we had the right flies on throughout the trip to give us the best shot at getting hits, and educated us on becoming better fisherman to our request. His ability to maneuver the boat around the stream allowed us to focus more on the fishing instead of looking for rocks.
- Jacob Sargent

★★★★★
Very good whitewater and fly fishing guides. Top notch!
- Brandon Welch

★★★★★
Non stop action! The float trip is the way to go if you want to fish the entire river
