I just had the pleasure of floating the Colorado River (Pump House to Radium) with Fish On Colorado Owner, Jeff Powles and another of his FOC guides, Calvin; I can’t recommend Fish On Colorado highly enough!
Despite the low flows and hot July conditions, we managed to move and/or net several trout. Their customer care was exemplary, as was their “bedside manner” with a guy (me) who, although an experienced fly fisherman, still had a lot to learn from these experts.
I was also impressed with their commitment to both my safety as well as that of the trout we were trying to catch. As soon as the water hit the temperature at which trout become dangerously distressed from a fight, Jeff and Calvin politely and respectfully ended the fishing for the day. For the remaining mile or so of the float, we kicked back, ate lunch, had a cold one, enjoyed the breathtaking Colorado River setting and shared fishing stories.
It was a beautiful Colorado summer day on a stunning stretch of an iconic river with two excellent guides. What could be better?
Thanks Fish On Colorado! I’ll definitely be back on the water with you soon!
