Colorado River- What sections you like for fishing?

I have floated Pumphouse to Radium, and it fished well. But not familiar the the other sections. I have a travel trailer I'll be staying in so tent sites are out. What sections do you recommend for easy floating (nothing over III) and fishing?

We've fished down to two bridges before with pretty good luck at times, lots of fish, dependent on hunger, fishing can be great to good to pretty darn slow

Fished them all down to Catamount. All have their strengths, have caught fish everywhere. Try them all.

Look for good looking runs and bends around and below islands; look for long deep runs below rapids for nymphing (my fave is river left on state bridge to 2 bridges section); Eddy out at the base of cliffs and nymph the upstream current along cliff walls.

Give Yarmony a scout before running it. It's closer to legit class 3, whereas the needle is just a few technical moves at these low flows. You can pull over river left right above the big left turn before it, and walk down to give it a look.
