River Characteristics

Description
The Uncompahgre River is a fly fishing destination located in the state of Colorado. It is known for its abundant population of rainbow and brown trout, as well as its scenic beauty and easy access from the town of Montrose. The river is a freestone stream, meaning that it is fed by snowmelt and has a clear, cold water flow. It is a relatively small river, but it is well-suited to fly fishing and offers a variety of fishing conditions and opportunities for anglers of all skill levels. The upper section of the river is located in the high alpine environment of the San Juan Mountains, while the lower section flows through the town of Montrose and offers more gentle and easily accessible fishing opportunities.
