Browns Canyon National Monument
Browns Canyon, located along the upper Arkansas River in Colorado, is known for premier trout fishing, outstanding big game habitat, world-famous whitewater, rugged and remote wildlands, and a proud cattle ranching tradition.
This diversity supports thousands of jobs, from river outfitters and guides to ranchers in the nearby communities of Salida and Buena Vista. Protecting this 22,000 acre gem along the Arkansas River as a National Monument is a community-driven effort to preserve this unique natural and economic resource for generations to come.
Fly fish or spin fish trips are offered from a half day up to 5 days long. We are happy to customize guided fishing trips to give you the best value and variety in western trout fishing. Our fly fishing guides and boats are set up specially for a maximum of two anglers. We use inflatable rafts as our craft of choice but also have drift boat “Dories” available by special arrangement on certain rivers. You are welcome to bring your waders for wade/walk fishing near camp or offshore during the day.
