I'd like to take a 13' raft down a section or two of the Upper CO Thursday and do some fishing along the way. I usually do Pumphouse to Radium or Rancho. I assume it's all very boney. Any recommendations on a good section or two for tomorrow? Thanks.

Gore Canyon has some great fishing--though the rapids are weak. (joking)

get on the water EARLY

Did it at about 800 cfs a couple weeks ago. Easy in a 13' but get on the water early to avoid upstream winds and find the bite...

Go downstream a little further. I ran Catamount to Lyon's Gulch a couple weeks ago and it was a nice float (with one decent rapid).

There is better fishing and less people down from rancho/state. Its at 900 cfs now, not very bony and very very easy.

I asked a few weeks ago but didn't get many good answers as to whether the Colorado between Hot Sulphur Springs (below Byer Canyon) and Kremmling makes a good float for fishing. Anyone on this thread know whether this section is floatable and fishable, and clear of fences, low bridges, etc?

Not looking for whitewater or great scenery - just a good stretch for fishing. Any thoughts?

Gold medal water through some of it. If it was floatable it would be floated. This stretch was the epicenter of conflict between landowner and fishermen back in the 80's? My limited understanding is courts sided with landowner and now you better not touch the bottom or even a rock above water.
