The Rio Grande is truly one of the best “unknown” rivers in America. That is to say, a crowded day on the Grande may resemble a very quiet day on another river. Drift boats frequent the river during the float season, leaving plenty of room for the wade fisherman.

The Rio Grande is the second longest river system in the U.S. South Fork and Creede are located at the headwaters where the absolute best fishing is to be found. A 22-mile section of river near South Fork is designated as Gold Medal Water. The D.O.W. states, “This is your best chance for a trophy fish.” This prestigious designation is only found on 168 miles of very special waters in Colorado.
