Enjoy a relaxing day on the Lower Gunnison River float fishing and casting your lines for healthy rainbow and brown trout. This section, often referred to as the Black Canyon, is the more accessible Gunnison Gorge National Conservation Area and remains the crown jewel of fly fishing on Colorado’s western slope.

Discover 10 miles of Colorado's Gold Medal waters with the highest concentration of fish in the state, including access to our exclusive two-mile stretch of private water at historic Angell Canyon Ranch. Located in a scenic desert canyon with lush riparian ecology, you will find spectacular geologoy, sightings of varied wildlife, and the longest float fishing season in western Colorado.

Spring conditions offer epic blue wing olive, and caddis fly hatches, while can’t-miss “Stone Fly Hatches” dominate May and June; summer conditions bring excellent hopper, terrestrial and caddis and PMD fishing, while nymphing and streamer tactics prevail in fall, finishing with midge and baetis in the winter months.

Our drift boats from Boulder Boat Works offer unparallel float fishing performance and maximum comfort on the river, allowing our guides to quietly glide through skinny sections of river where other boats cannot. Anglers appreciate the benefits of secure casting platforms, padded high-back seating, and easy access to multiple rod storage. All-day comfort is great for those with low mobility.

Lower Gunnison's reputation as a prime fishing destination is well-earned, and whether you're a fly-fishing lover or a newbie, you'll get to test your skills while enjoying the natural beauty of the Gunnison Gorge. Book your adventure now and experience what Colorado's Gold Medal Trout Waters have to offer.

Pricing reflects up to 2 Anglers Per Boat. More than 2 people, another boat will be added.
