Which river to float in Colorado?

I'm looking to do a unguided raft trip in Colorado that has great scenery and great trout fishing. It would be a 3 day 2 night trip, nothing over class III rapids though. Any ideas??

Try Utah. We're full.

Besides, the fishing sucks in CO and there are no class III rivers.

You just described the A and B section of the Green in Utard.

Camp at either of the Grasshopper campgrounds and wade fish for a day...that's a nice 3 days of floating and fishin'.

classic. all those pesky tourists are just too much for the good captain. a nice cup of tea, earl grey, hot, would go a long way right here.

seriously though, go to pumphouse with seven million of your closest friends. otherwise theres not much else out there. mesa canyon. northgate. a multi day ark trip. kolorado kant kwite kompare to Utah or Utah North as far as multi days go.....

Gunnison Gorge, world class fishing and class III with a hike in which can be tough for rafts but fits the bill for scenery and camping.
