Visiting CO - RV Park with fly fishing near?
« on: May 13, 2013, 05:59:49 PM »
Hi

We will be visiting CO in an RV in July/August and am looking for an RV park with some fly fishing rivers close by so that I don't have to leave the wife on her own all day :)

Can anyone suggest a park that has a river close by or even a trout filled lake?

Thanks!

big state lots of opportunities.
South there is the Arkansas
Middle there is the Colorado
North there is the Poudre.
West the Taylor, Gunnison and RioGrande
Those are just a few

Lots.  All depends on what area you are traveling.  Big state

I'm pretty open to location - starting off around Denver and will end up in Yellowstone at some point - I have 3 months to explore.

I've just been looking at the RioGrande - thoughts?

Some of the rivers seen to be through private land - is that typical in CO?

Basalt - You've got a plethora of rivers to choose from.  The wifey wouldn't be bored there.

Hit the Poudre River.  It's a long, varied river.  You won't regret it.  Then spend a lot of time in the Yellowstone and Galatin Rivers.  Great stuff.

Lots of interesting ideas. Make my pitch for the local economy. RV sites at O'Haver Lake near Poncha Springs. Did quite well there on Monday. RV Sites at Chalk Creek area (in between Salida and BV). RV sites in the BV area. All of these sites are close to the Ark River and have access to local nearby lakes as well. Might add the Cottonwood Creek and Chalk Creek areas have hot springs as well and are not crowded this time of year. BV and Salida has some decent brew pubs as well. Blue Skies where ever you go.
