The Colorado River begins its 1450-mile journey in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, flowing through the Grand Canyon in Arizona to the Gulf of California located between the Baja Peninsula of California and the mainland of Mexico. In Colorado, as the river travels west from Rocky Mountain National Park, it convergences with the Fraser River and near the town of Hot Sulfur Springs, provides fantastic fly fishing.

Some of the river’s most popular fishing areas can be found west of Byers Canyon; places such as Paul Gilbert, Lone Buck, Parshall, Kemp-Breeze, Sun Set Ranch, Reeder’s Creek, and the Pump House to Radium stretch just to name a few. Designated as the state’s Gold Medal Water and known for its dry fly fishing, the Colorado River has excellent fishing opportunities both wading and floating.

Brown trout are healthy and there are plenty to be caught in the 12-16’ range. The rainbows are scarce but if an angler is lucky enough to land one, chances are it will be a bruiser. Not many rainbows survived the Whirling Disease epidemic but those that did tend to be serious rod benders.

Regulations in this area are flies and lures only and all fish must be returned to the water immediately.
