Rocky Mountain National Park, The Colorado River, this is the perfect Colorado Fly Fishing experience
Rocky Mountain National Park is the perfect setting for this Colorado fishing Expedition. The Continental Divide runs right through the middle of the park creating two unique fisheries. We will start out on the east side catching Colorado’s state fish, the greenback cutthroat trout. With some hiking, this is one of the best places in the state to catch these rare beauties. After a quick drive over the continental divide on the famous Trail Ridge Road, we head into the wilderness of the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park, chasing another native colorado trout, the Colorado River Cutthroat. This section of the trip will provide the possibility for 100 fish days as we hike along trout filled streams up to high alpine lakes loaded with large trout that rarely see a hook. We will top it all off with a full day float fishing trip on the Colorado River and a big banquet dinner. This is certainly the perfect rocky mountain fishing experience.
