Whitewater Rafting Class II-III –

It is a hidden jewel, off the beaten path, tucked deep in steep granite walls below the Black Canyon National Park. The Gunnison River is a sportsman’s and WHITEWATER paddler’s paradise. The clear, cold waters of the Gunnison have been designated a Gold Medal Trout Fishery. Its narrow river corridor creates exciting class III whitewater action on a river that has been included into the National Park System in 2003.
Accessible only by foot, the Gunnison Gorge is a wilderness canyon for those who are willing to literally go the extra mile down to the river launch. A trip to the canyon floor requires a hike of one mile down a medium steep trail. Guests are expected to carry their personal gear in back packs provided by DVK. With every step, the wilderness feeling deepens. The solitude and scenery found at the canyon floor make the hike down worth every step. Enter the wilderness world of the Gunnison Gorge for a whitewater rafting or kayaking trip of one to three days.

OPTIONAL: See our custom fishing trips for rates & dates “GOLD MEDAL FISHING”

Designated a Gold Medal Trout fishery, the Gunnison is one of those legendary stretches that is known throughout the west. Avid anglers speak about this one in whispers around the campfire. “The Home of the Lunkar Trout” it offers both Browns and Rainbows.
The primary reason for this reputation is the river’s inaccessibility. There are only three trails leading into the Gunnison Gorge giving access to approximately one mile of bank fishing at each trail head. The only way to fish the entire corridor is float fishing. Our CUSTOM fishing trips put two anglers and one guide in each raft. This allows you to fish downstream at your own pace. To allow for adequate time for fishing and full enjoyment of the canyon, it is best to plan a three day trip.
Special regulations are in effect to protect the fishery which allows only one fish over 16″ and two under 12″ to be kept. Fly and lures only. We encourage everyone to catch and release. A valid Colorado fishing license is required.

ADDITIONAL FISHING TRIP OPTIONS WITH DVK: We also set up custom trout fishing trips in other Colorado and Wyoming on some of the best trout rivers in the U.S. (Request more information on these trips). See special fishing sheets for custom trips, type of flies, etc.
