Colorado River Fishery

A trip to Marble Canyon Outfitters on the Colorado River will treat any fishing enthusiast, expert or beginner, to an unparalleled angling experience offering scenic views of the Grand Canyon and the bounty of a world-class rainbow trout fishery. There are plenty of reasons why this corner of northern Arizona draws anglers from all over the globe.

Fly fishermen can take on the challenge of angling for a catch from the beautiful local stock of rainbow trout every day of the year. Our fishery, nestled in the foot of the sandstone cliffs surrounding Glen Canyon, which can reach heights of 1,500 feet, offers a secluded fishing experience and a great getaway from the stress of the work week.

Anglers can only arrive at the Lees Ferry fishery location by boat, insulating them from any signs of civilization beyond the waters. A vast array of midges, almost forty species in all, keep the rainbow trout populations well fed and ready to snap up the lures of any fly fishermen casting their lines in this area.

Although there are seasonal changes affecting where an angler can find rainbows, but nymphing techniques are fairly effective throughout the year. Dry flies used for distance casting are also useful, especially in the summer months where midge activity is highest at the edges of gravel bars.

The professional guide staff of Marble Canyon Outfitters will make sure that you have the right tools to take on the superior fishing opportunities available along this portion of the Colorado River. Fly fishermen can take advantage of our staff’s expertise in equipment, lures and casting techniques to improve their own skills at spotting and catching rainbows.

Marble Canyon Outfitters prides itself on the unsurpassed satisfaction of fishing enthusiasts who casts their lines into our waters. Call us today to schedule your visit to the fantastic fishing spots to be found in Glen Canyon in northern Arizona.
