This package includes a full day float trip with Confluence Casting, which offers great trips on the "lower upper" Colorado above Dotsero - valid for 2013-14, subject to availability.  Operator Jack Bombardier knows this reach of river from years of floating on his home water - and he will get you into fish but also share his deep knowledge of and love for the river for a truly memorable day on the water.  You'll float through one of the most colorful and beautiful canyons anywhere, and on a typical float you might see bighorn sheep, eagles, dinosaur tracks, waterfalls, and lots of feisty trout.  Best of all, you'll enjoy a section of river that gets little traffic so you'll likely have the river experience to yourselves!

You'll also enjoy two nights of lodging (subject to availability, must be used before Memorial Day weekend 2014) with the Comfort Inn and Suites Carbondale.  The amentities you'll enjoy include a complimentary hot breakfast buffet, free WiFi access, fresh baked cookies available around check-in time, an indoor swimming pool and hot tub, complimentary bike rental for up to two hours, 24 hour coffee and tea service, and pet-friendly rooms are available. The hotel is located directly adjacent to the Roaring Fork river (along a reach of the Gold Medal waters that some locals call one of the best public stretches in the area) - so you'll have the chance to fish right outside of the hotel.

Finally, the winner will receive a $100 gift certificate for dinner at Carbondale's Russets Restaurant - an outstanding restaurant offering quality food with an international flair, under the direction of chef Claude Van Horton.

Thanks to Confluence Casting, Comfort Inn & Suites, and Russet's for their generous support of Colorado Trout Unlimited!
