The Roaring Fork River is one of the rare gems in the West. Freestone with big fish, and lots of them. The Roaring Fork river runs through Aspen, Basalt, Carbondale, and meanders all the way to Glenwood Springs, where it confluences with the Colorado. Tall evergreens, aspen trees, and cottonwoods line this river as it passes through some of the most coveted property in the world. From the high alpine forest terrain in Aspen, to the red rock canyon in Glenwood Springs, the Roaring fork offers some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in the world. Cut-throat trout and brookies fill the upper stretch, then big rainbows and browns take over the big water.
Trout over 18 inches are common and most of these fish are wild. Rocky Mountain whitefish bring welcome diversity to the fishery with some of these native fish growing over 24 inches. Anglers can expect big number days with big fish. The Roaring Fork is home to famous dry fly hatches throughout the year including green drakes, stoneflies, pale morning duns, beatis, midges , and more. The Roaring Fork Conservancy is a local non-profit built to protect and enhance this precious river so the bug life and fish habitat is phenomenal. The community values its resource, resulting in an elevated angling experience.
We float in rafts and dories on the Roaring Fork and have over 40 miles of river to choose from. This river fishes year around, with the most spectacular hatches happening late June-September.
