Where We Fish
UpRiver Fly Fishing specializes in guided fishing trips based out of Buena Vista and Salida, Colorado - just a short drive from Colorado Springs!
All of our excursions are suitable for beginners & experts alike.
Expert guides, high-quality equipment, and an exceptional meal add to the exhilaration of landing beautiful browns, rainbows, & cutthroat trout!
We fish the Gold Medal headwaters of the Arkansas River including Brown's Canyon National Monument. We also offer 4x4 adventures to several spectacular high-mountain lakes in the Sawatch Mountain Range. If you'd like a stillwater fishing experience, we do that too! Transportation can be provided to and from your lodging in Chaffee County.
Stop into our full-service fly shop for fly fishing rentals, "hot flies", and the necessary equipment to get you out fishing on the Arkansas River.
Located in downtown Buena Vista, Colorado.
Our Backyard Fishery
In 2014, 102 miles of the Arkansas River was added to the list of Gold Medal trout fisheries, the longest stretch of trophy fly fishing water in the state of Colorado.
The Arkansas is a freestone river that boasts thriving populations of brown trout and stocked populations of healthy rainbow trout. Post-run-off, the Arkansas River becomes one of the best hopper-dropper fisheries in the country.
