Float Fishing the Gunnison Gorge National Conservation Area “Wilderness” is truly an incredible opportunity for every angler

According to Chris Santella’s book 50 places to fish before you die it is considered one of the best fishing trips in Colorado. With our 3 Day “Deluxe” format fishing is only half the trip, the beauty of the Gunnison Gorge/Black Canyon, the resounding quiet, the wildlife you encounter, the amazing food and of course the world-class fishing provide the ultimate Gorge experience.

RIGS Fly Shop begins booking Three Day Float Fishing Trips through the Gunnison Gorge a year in advance. June, July and August regularly fill up early because of the popularity of those months. However, shoulder season can be some of the best fishing with less people on the water. Read about shoulder seasons here. If you have any questions or would like more information about future dates, please give us a call at (970)626-4460. RIGS also offers one day Drift Boat and Walk Wade trips on the Gunnison River year round.
