The Ute Indians at one time referred to the White River as the "Smoking River" because of its occasional fog covered mornings in the spring and fall. The White River valley, located in northwest Colorado near Meeker, was a special place to the Utes because of its beauty and abundance of wildlife - qualities that are still readily apparent today. Beginning in the Flat Tops Wilderness of the White River National Forest, the White flows to the Green River in Utah. On its way the water flows between canyon walls and through rich and fertile ranch land creating scenic and memorable images. This freestone river holds arguably some of the nicest wild trout in the west. Small enough to wade, yet big enough to hold many large fish, the White is an excellent trout fishery.

An angler here can expect to catch rainbows, browns, cutthroats and beautiful hybrid cut-bows. Because of the rivers rich aquatic bug life and remoteness a trout over 20 inches is not uncommon. Smoking River Guides is a roster of 22 experienced fly fishing guides with thousands of days on the water putting our clients onto Trout.
