WILDERNESS ADVENTURE PRESS MAPS: COLORADO ROARING FORK RIVER The Roaring Fork heads high in the Hunter-Fryingpan Wilderness, dropping 75 miles to its confluence with the Colorado River at Glenwood Springs. Its a fairly small, fast river, although it becomes floatable below Basalt and Carbondale. Fishing is excellent from above Aspen all the way to Glenwood Springs, and parts of the river are designated Wild Trout Water and Gold Medal Water. It is famous for its technical hatches and 14- to 18-inch trout. Access is excellent on the Fork, with many public access areas throughout its course. Above Aspen, much of its in the national forest. From the Crystal River down to the Colorado River confluence, the Roaring Fork is Gold Medal Water with special regulations in effect. There are many trout in the Fork, but there are also many whitefish. Stick with streamers or dries if you dislike whities. The green drake hatch is one of the rivers best hatches, and anglers flock here in early July to take advantage of it. Floating starts below the Fryingpan River confluence. Aside from the ramps listed, there are unimproved ramps at Basalt, Hooks and Mulford. The West Bank Bridge ramp is the take-out for the 8 mile float down from Carbondale or the put-in for a float to Glenwood Springs. This is all prime water. Aside from the access shown, the Burry Access offers about a mile of water on the north bank around mile marker 9 on CO 82 just upstream of the Cattle Creek confluence. Its well marked.
