Float Fishing Trips

One of the best ways to fish and enjoy the Upper Rio Grande River! Much of the great scenery and the best fishing on the Rio Grande is inaccessible by wading, so a float trip is one of the best ways to go. Floating is seasonal depending on river flows. We use a combination of hard bottom boats and rafts with fishing frames depending on water levels. The season generally runs June thru Mid-July. We typically begin booking trips in Mid-March.

Wade Fishing Trips

Our wade trips are perfect for your seasoned anglers as well as your anglers that have never casted a fly rod! Our guides are prepared to tailor an experience for your skill level and wading comfortability. The public water on the Rio Grande offers a variety of sections ideal for any angler. Wade season typically begins in Mid-July lasts until Mid-October.

Small Stream Trips

We also offer a variety of small stream trips around Creede. These trips can be more technical fishing than your average river trip. Stream trips may require hiking and difficult terrain. You can choose a trip that is suitable for your skill and desired experience.

Private Water Wade Trips

CGO has private access to some of the best water on the Rio Grande River. Trips are limited to two people and are available on a limited basis. There is a rod fee but really there is nothing like having a great section of the Rio Grande River all to yourself. Call or stop by for more information.
