Middle Colorado

The middle stretches of the legendary Colorado River, west of Kremmling, feature some of Colorado's finest and most popular fishing. In the beautiful high forest and steep canyons of the Gore Range, just two and one-half hours from Denver, the middle Colorado is fished and floated for nearly 58 miles.

There are numerous access points to this wild trout stream and a strong population of healthy fish. Whether hiking up Gore Canyon from Pumphouse put-in, or floating any of the several good drift sections below, you can always find a hungry trout. If hiking up, be prepared for a strenuous hike, rewarded by pristine water and a lack of crowds. If floating down get a qualified guide to negotiate the CLASS II-III whitewater and be prepared to fish waters only accessible by boat.

The Middle Colorado River is a unique stretch of river unparalleled in the state. It offers great hatches all summer long, with strong fat trout, some of whom have never seen a fly!

Types of Fish: Brown, Cutthroat, and Rainbow
