Colorado's Upper Rio Grande

August 6, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

“For more solitude and alpine atmosphere, there is the Rio Grande as a tiny meadow stream that begins high on the Continental Divide in the Weminuche Wilderness. For a lot more solitude, tumultuous water and big trout – if you are nimble and the river isn’t too high – you might slip down into the rugged canyon known as The Box, 4 miles below Rio Grande Reservoir.” Ed Dentry writes about the magic of fly fishing the upper Rio Grande in the Rocky Mountain News.
