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 fishing in the gold medal Arkansas River!
The Arkansas River in Colorado 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!
