If fly fishing on renowned Gold Medal river waters of Colorado is on your angling bucket list... well then, you've just found yourself the perfect fishing trip. This family-friendly fly fishing trip is sure to provide an exceptional experience and some wonderful memories for any fisherman.
Both Fryingpan River and Roaring Fork River have been awarded Gold Medal status in fishing. Known as the "Fork" to locals, Roaring Fork has also been classified as Wild Trout Waters, so it doesn't get much better. The Fork is best known for Rainbow and Brown Trout, but you may get lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Snake River Cutthroat, Green Back Cutthroat or Brook Trout.
Roaring Fork Valley is certainly a place for outdoor adventurists. The 50 mile valley is a land of beautiful mountains and meadows, rich in culture and history. Most small towns in the valley offer unique cafes, bakeries and restaurants housed in refurbished storefronts from the mining boom in the late 19th century. Strolling these small town streets is delightful after a nice long day of fly-fishing.
Roaring Fork Valley is certainly one of Colorado's favorite places to stay and play.
