Rivers Edge Anglers At Rock N Row
Guided River Trips:
Fly-fishing from raft is an unforgettable experience. Long, float trip, access to all the productive water, a better view of the fish, and of course, the pure enjoyment of boating.
Trips are available from March through October. Float trips are optimal for guests who already have some basic fly-fishing skills- total beginners may do better by beginning with a walk and wade trip.
Half – Day Float Trips
This is an excellent trip for people who want to try float-fishing. We run this trip through Bighorn Sheep Canyon downstream.
1 Angler $220, 2 Anglers $260
Full Day Float Trip
Fish where the shore-based anglers can only dream about as we float through areas with difficult access or private property. The full-day trip includes time to stop and wade, enjoy a riverside lunch, and experience the full range of feeding patterns during the day. Trips are run in Bighorn Sheep Canyon.
1 Angler $350, 2 Anglers $380

One-Day Rowing Instructional
Join us for a day of intensive instruction – normally covering 15-20 miles of river. Starting in gentle, moving water, we progress to reading and scouting rapids, defensive boating, river dynamics, using eddies, ferrying techniques, and river safety. Our goal is to make anglers into safe boaters –people who know their abilities, know their limits, and who have the proper foundation so they can continue to improve their skills on their own. Section of river based on appraised skill level.
