Colorado Fly Fishing & Trout Fishing Trips 

Fish from a raft on Colorado's Arkansas River. Your Browns Canyon fly fishing and trout fishing adventure awaits!

Colorado Fly Fishing_2 The Arkansas River's high elevation, cold water provides the perfect environment for Colorado fly fishing and spin-casting enthusiasts.  Fishing is ideal in late July and August,  when the Browns Canyon clears from spring runoff, and fish are ready to attack dry flies, droppers and spinners. The action is very steady and the success rate among fishermen and women on the Arkansas River is consistently high.

Fishing from a raft allows fishermen to drift into endless eddies along the canyon corridor. Between casts, enjoy the beauty of floating through the Browns Canyon Wilderness.
