More Colorado Summer Activities
One of the best places for Colorado summer activities is the Arkansas Valley, where our Granite Outpost resides and from where most of our Arkansas River trips leave. Nestled at the foot of the Rocky Mountains’ 14,000-foot Collegiate Peaks, the Arkansas Valley is considered by many to be the summertime outdoor recreation mecca of Colorado and the capital of whitewater rafting for the United States. The Continental Divide Trail and Colorado Trail run through the stunning peaks of the Sawatch Range. Our year-round mild climate, clean air, and clear sparkling water are just some of the things that make the Arkansas Valley a truly great place to vacation.

Summit County: Breckenridge, Keystone, Frisco, Copper Mountain
Summit County is known as “Colorado’s Playground” for good reason. The County is home to four world-class ski areas; four high country golf courses; Lake Dillon, which features two marinas, windsurfing, sail boating, outdoor concerts at the Lake Dillon Amphitheatre, and the infamous “Tiki Bar;” numerous tennis courts and softball fields; three rivers; fifty miles of paved bike trails; hundreds of miles of backcountry biking and hiking trails; several thousand of acres of federally designated “wilderness area;” and some of the finest fly-fishing on Earth. Talk about covering all the Colorado activities you can handle!
To top it off, Summit County receives three hundred sunny days per year! Hence, over three million visitors per year find themselves basking in the grandeur of Colorado’s Playground. This is one of the best places anywhere to blast down a whitewater river or a technical singletrack; or to simply kick back and relax on the shores of the dazzling Lake Dillon, take a quiet stroll through the Eagle’s Nest National Forest, or to peruse the many quaint shops along Main Street in Breckenridge. Whatever your idea of the perfect Colorado activity, Summit County is sure to please.

Colorado Fly Fishing:
The Arkansas River is one of Colorado’s major waterways. This high-elevation river with crystal-clear water provides the perfect environment for Colorado fly fishing. From its headwaters near Leadville, it flows south through the towns of Buena Vista and Salida. There is over 100 miles of floatable water with Gold Medal fly fishing stretches holding an abundance of Colorado Brown and Rainbow Trout. You’ll find plenty of variety for Colorado fly fishing, with endless riffles, runs, pools, undercuts, and overhanging brush. Fly fishing Colorado with a professional guide ensures the quality of your experience. They know the water, know the hatches and know the fish. For you eager and determined beginners the guides will teach gear selection, casting techniques, knots, entomology, and reading the river in a hands-on instructional course. If you already have your basics covered you could enjoy a full or half day walk and wade with a guide. Think you can handle stepping it up a notch? Enjoy a half day, full day or evening fly-fishing float down the river in order to challenge yourself to improve upon your fly-fishing skills. The ideal time for fly fishing in Colorado is in April and May before snowmelt brings river levels up or in July, August, September and October when the river has cleared up from the spring runoff.
Excellent Colorado fly fishing, including sections of Gold Medal Waters, is also available in the Summit County area.
