FLOAT FISHING TRIPS

ENJOY A DAY FLOAT FISHING ON ONE OF OUR ICONIC WATERS

Guided Float Fishing trips offer a unique way experience fly fishing and enjoy all that a day on the water in Colorado has to offer. If the idea of a relaxing day fishing a river from a drift boat or raft with fly rod in hand sounds fun, you can’t go wrong. One major benefit of a float trip is they allow for not only great fishing but also provides anglers abundant opportunities to cast to fish that you couldn’t access on a wade trip. Float trips also allow you to cover miles of water and provide a new sense of adventure around each bend. Best of all, like a wade trip, your attentive guide will take care of your every need and provide coaching and guidance. It’s a great way to experience some of Colorado’s grander rivers, all while fishing from the comfort of a boat. If you enjoy casting larger dry flies and streamers, fishing out of a boat is a great way to cover more water without the legwork of moving up and down the river. If your party consists of 2-anglers, float trips also provide a great bonding opportunity for you and your fellow angler for some good conversation and spirited ribbing.
