There are over 9,000 miles of trout streams in Colorado. Out of this total only 167.8 miles are currently designated as Gold Medal streams. Of these, few are as illustrious as the Roaring Fork River. This fast paced, rocky freestone beauty originates in the high peaks of Independence Pass. Fishable from a boat nearly year-round, anglers can expect to tangle with rainbows, cuttbows, browns and pure cutthroats.
