fly fishing and river tubing UPDATE - Spring '06
past winter was one of our snowiest in over a decade, which
translates into the potential for a great runoff and a fantastic
river season. The rivers we raft, fish and tube on here in
the Steamboat area are mostly free flowing where no dams impede
on the flow of the river. The rivers rise and fall depending
on how fast the snow melts off.
April, May, June and until mid-July are our highest waters,
translating into great rafting.
trips on the North Platte, Eagle, Colorado and Yampa will
be in prime shape all during this time. For a quick 1/4 day
run, the Yampa
Town Run is your best shot for getting in and out
of the water. The North
Platte through North Gate Canyon (Class III) is
our classic full day trip and a must if you have a day to
spend with us. The Cross
Mountain Canyon (Class
IV) stretch of the Yampa is our wildest whitewater but may
be to high for us to offer trips until it recedes to a lower
flow, sometime in June. If you are visiting from early June
on and want a whitewater trip of a lifetime, ask about this

up, post runoff. Click
