Colorado River

The 1,450-mile long Colorado River begins its journey in Rocky Mountain National Park and finally ends up in the Gulf of California. Along its way it carves though the breathtaking Glenwood Canyon then continues onto the Colorado Plateau. Populated with Brown and Rainbow trout, the Colorado River ranges from rough and tumble canyon water, to huge riffle-run-pool water.

Colorado River

In Glenwood Canyon, public water abounds with a bike trail that runs the entire 18-mile length. Below Glenwood Springs, the Colorado is best fished out of a drift boat, working the shorelines, riffles, and huge current seams for the river’s large Brown and Rainbow trout. Hatches are variable in this section of the Colorado; nymph and streamer fishing are typically the most productive way to hook into these large fish. Check current Colorado River Fishing Report here.
