I have gone into this retail store on multiple occasions. I am not an angler by any means but have a lot of friends and relatives who are. I would need help to purchase gifts for others and I would have willingly given my business to the Bucking Rainbow had any of the employees offered help. I live and work... More

We surprised my parents with a weekend in Steamboat for their 50th anniversary. Part of that surprise was a guided fly fishing trip on a private ranch. Bucking Rainbow had been recommended to us by numerous people and I see why! Everyone was professional and my parents LOVED it. That's all they talked about the rest of the weekend. They... More

This is a very exciting trip. However, it is not for the faint of heart. Be prepared to be thrown out into the rapids. The guides were super! They really know their stuff & prepare you for what's ahead. Highly recommended for the adventurous and those who can swim well. It includes transportation to the rapids, all equipment, and lunch.

Our Elk River white water rafting guides were goofy, fun, yet very knowledgable and made us feel at ease. The whole experience was very memorable and one of the most fun things I've done! The store is great too!

This is a fantastic store for anyone, be it a fisherperson, or just someone looking for great clothing. First, the clothing. A great selection of wonderful stuff you will not find in other places. A locally owned store, they work with you to find things that work for you and will let you know if something doesn't fit right or... More

Very friendly organization with a competent staff. Three men in our family took the 1/2 day fly fishing trip. The guide, Scott, was excellent. He knew the area well, and made sure they got the full amount of time on the river for fishing. He showed them the right spots to cast and made sure each guy caught a bevy... More

One of my dreams was to go fly fishing...I kept waiting to go with a guy, simply because it seems like the right thing to do with a guy. Well, I decided to stop waiting and booked a trip with one of my friends that is a gal. Bucking Rainbow was the perfect place to go! Our guide was knowledgeable,... More

This is an all day trip, starting with a 90 minute drive to the put in on the lower Yampa river. Another family of 5 joined our group. We had 3 rafts total,... More
