Colorado River, Middle Description

A beautiful stretch of water that begins near Kremmling and goes down stream 40 plus miles to Dotsero. Tons of float and wade access available. A great stretch of river if you are looking to get away from the crowds and maybe do the camp/fish thing. This stretch has some of the state's best Gold Medal water. We have access to private put-ins and take -outs on this strech of the famous Colorado.
