Our Colorado River float trips offer anglers the opportunity to fish with experienced and knowledgeable guides who can easily navigate the river, select the right flies, and provide instruction on casting and fishing techniques. Our guides also have a wealth of knowledge about the river and the fish that live in it.
Overall, a guided float trip on the Colorado River can be an unforgettable experience for anglers of all skill levels, and a great way to appreciate the beauty and diversity of this iconic river.
At Fish On Colorado, we guide two sections of the Colorado River: the “Upper C” and the “Lower C”. The Upper C starts just downstream from the small mountain town of Kremmling, Colorado at a location known as “Pumphouse”. It then continues for 15 miles flowing southwest until the river crosses underneath highway 131. This section is a popular location for people from Denver as it is the closest floatable river to the front range.
There are class 3 white water rapids along the trip, hot springs and many locations for an overnight camp out. The only way someone is able to see this section of water is to float it as there are no roads or even cell service in the area.
The Lower C starts in Glenwood Springs and flows west for over 35 miles to the town of Rifle, Colorado. Many people use Glenwood Springs as a base city for multi-day vacations in the central Rocky Mountains. This section of river boasts some of the largest wild trout in the state–some reaching lengths of over 30 inches. The Lower C fishes exceptionally well in the early spring and fall. Make sure to book you date early as our reservations fill up quickly.
