During this last stretch before the snowmelt is one of the best times of the year for fishing in Summit County. After the snowmelt turns the rivers into chocolate milk for at least a month, they become unfishable so the spring is a great time to take advantage of fishing in the many rivers Summit County has to offer. If you’re not into fishing there are endless, scenic snow trail hikes you can take advantage of before the melt.

Plenty of events and activities will be taking place all spring in Summit County. While experiencing these spring time activities be sure to keep in mind that whitewater rafting season with Breckenridge Whitewater starts late this spring on May 1st and runs into the summer.
