Headwaters of the Colorado River:
The Colorado River has its origins in beautiful Rocky Mountain
National Park.  In the park as a small creek, the Colorado
meanders through alpine meadows filled with elk, beaver
ponds, and brook trout.  Although the trout are not monsters,
they are plentiful and there is not a lot of angling pressure,
making the headwaters a fun place to spend a day fly fishing.

The Upper Colorado River:
As the Colorado River begins to flow through some reservoirs -
Shadow Mountain, Granby, and Windy Gap, to name a few -  it
becomes a larger river.  Brook trout are replaced by wild brown
and rainbow trout.  Diverse and prolific hatches help define the
Colorado River from its exit from the Rocky Mountain National
Park all the way to the town of Kremmling.  There are good
public access points along the river, especially around the
towns of Hot Sulphur Springs and Parshall.  There is also a lot
of private fishing access in this area.  If you are looking for
access to some of this private water, give us a call!!!!

Williams Fork of the Colorado River:
The Williams Fork of the Colorado joins the main river at
Parshall.  Most famous for the mile and a half tailwater
between Williams Fork Reservoir and the confluence, this
section of water is full of brown trout and has a few rainbow
trout as well.  In the fall, the Williams Fork fills with brown trout
from the Colorado River, making it quite an experience.  This
little jewel has the full package for anyone up for a little hike.

The Lower Colorado River:
Downstream from Kremmling, the Colorado River meets with
the Blue River and becomes much larger.  One can hike and
fish in the legendary Gore Canyon, explore the banks
downstream, or float different sections of the river for the next
eighty miles.  There are lots of big rainbow and brown trout in
these sections.  Although fly fisherman can experience good
dry fly action, nymph fishing and streamers tend to be the most
consistent producers.  Floating the lower Colorado is an
experience!  Beautiful scenery, plentiful wildlife, and feisty fish
make for very memorable days on the mighty Colorado River!
