Ridgway has miles and miles of waterways, so catching a stunning trout during your fishing adventure is a breeze in this area! The Uncompahgre River offers great wading and fly fishing with plentiful rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout. Dallas Creek, Canyon Creek and Upper Cow Creek are known to have brook and rainbow trout as well. For those who prefer boat fishing, the Ridgway Reservoir has a marina and several access points. Plus, it’s stocked with rainbow & native brown trout!
For anyone looking for some guidance on the local rivers (and to get the details on the best fishing holes), we always turn to our friends at RIGS Fly Shop & Guide Service. They offer gear rentals, a fly shop, and guided fly fishing and float fishing trips.
PS. Don’t forget that a fishing license is required on Colorado waterways.
