Fishing and Boating Access in Glenwood Springs, CO

Glenwood Springs is the ultimate fly fishing destination in the State of Colorado. The town is tri-sected by two prominent Gold Medal rivers (the Roaring Fork and Colorado River). 15 minutes upstream is the Crystal River and another 15 is the famous Frying Pan River. Overall, you’ll find dozens of miles of contiguous Gold Medal water from three different rivers (all with different conditions and hatches). It doesn’t get any better than this!
